Nostalgia

This week I was inspired to create a couple of bracelets with the Nostalgia of past times when pictures were black and white.

Maybe a reminiscence time where I believe there was more fervor in praying and getting closer to all Divine.
For some reason those pictures do bring a very sensitive part of me.  Sensitive in the sense of being in touch with the Spiritual more.

I have always loved antiques and the pictures I used on these couple of bracelets bring that feel to them.

One I created honoring Our Lady of Sorrows


In this bracelet I used a beautiful image of Our Lady of Sorrows in black and white adorned with clear rhinestones.  Using beautiful white foil glass hears, to express Her Love for humanity that She accepted being Mother to Our Lord and knowing His Sacrifice for humanity, and black and white lampwork glass beads.

I incorporated pink roses also representing Her Love and a reminder that Her Love will always be with us.

Another bracelet I created is honoring Our Lady of Lourdes


Also using a beautiful image of Our Lady of Lourdes in black and white and adorned with clear rhinestones as well.

I created a beautiful pendant using a vintage brooch, converted into pendant, and adding a vintage medal of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal and adorned with clear rhinestones to make the medal stand out.

On this bracelet the colors are more subtle using beautiful smokey lavender, very unique color, beads and beautiful Earth tone Czech. glass beads to accent the white pearls and to make the pendant stand out more, I used a beautiful handcrafted red rose created by my daughter-in-law, Ya-Ya.
