“My name is Jan and own Mosaic Crosses and Crafts. I am an artist living in north Alabama. I make handcrafted wooden crosses, frames, and other shapes all using mosaic glass, stones, and glass pieces. Each and every piece is unique, not one is ever the same. Just like the way God made us (Psalm 139: 13,14 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well).

I got into this business through my sister, Sara. She lived in Huntsville while her husband was serving in Afghanistan, and we would work together creating crosses to sell at local art shows. Sara moved away when her husband came home, and now it’s just me (with a little help from Chase, my husband). I enjoy creating beautiful, unique pieces through mosaic art. God made the world with so many beautiful colors, different shapes, sizes, and resources… it’s fun to use my talents to create and for display in someone’s home to enjoy! (Romans 12:6,7 “Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching”)

The cross represents what Christ did on the cross, may we never forget the sacrifice that was made for us! Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
