We tend to think of the cross symbol with a typically longer vertical compared to the shorter horizontal component. But other cross designs show a more symmetric approach such as the Coptic, Canterbury, Occitan and even St George's cross. Reader Ioana's video tutorial for a superduo beaded cross pendant is of the latter category.
Her design uses superduo, bicones and seed beads - check out the Youtube link in the info part for a materials list. She also sells the PDF tutorial in her Etsy store.
The cross is 3D and makes for a beautiful necklace focal. If you are planning to make gifts for Easter, this is might be the one for you!
Please note Ioana is a left-handed instructor so you'll have to either bead it in the same direction as she does or adapt for being right handed!
