Shuptrine’s Gold Leaf Crosses are handmade works of art, each expertly crafted and detailed. Aside from the Christian motif, the ancient design of two bars crossing reminds us that humanity is made up of both matter and spirit, and that we are constantly evolving. The cross represents the strength we have been given; and naturally, it reminds us that our souls are everlasting…crossing time and time again in love and purity. In our gallery, located in an historic 1901 Brownstone building near the base of Lookout Mountain, Tennessee, artisans are busy gilding with genuine gold leaf, restoring antiques and frames, carving and gilding new frames for important paintings, and tending to various other art related projects, including crafting our special crosses. As you enter our website, please realize anything is possible and we are always up for a challenge. We can make anything from wood, any design, any size, and any finish or patination.
