Milagros Charm Necklace

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 beautiful necklace with the inspiration of the ever loving Sacred Heart of Jesus. The stunning heart milagro on the center is a reminder of that, His ever loving Heart and the milagros attached to be a reminder of miracles to come or were granted. I added a large Our Lady of Gudalupe medal and Assumtion of Virgin Mary and turquoise. I also added some vintage charms to give it more of an ethnic feel and look to it.
