Milagros Charm Bracelet

Milagros "Miracles" are small devotional charms that are traditionally used in most Latin American Countries. These votives are placed in small shrines, church, nichos, retablos, saints or altars.
Milagros also refers to an ancient aspect of Hispanic Folk Culture: Small silver or gold votive offerings.
A person attaches a Milagro to a saint for a special request of a miracle for a particular aliment of the body.

I created this bracelet as a reminder that miracles do exist and with prayer and devotion God will grant you the miracle.

The center Milagro heart, represents the wounded heart of Our Blessed Mother, I also included a breast milagro, for breast cancer, a praying man, cat, bird and others.

I also added very colorful festive glass lampwork beads.
