Milagros Charm Bracelet

MILAGROSMilagros "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 was inspired to create a Milagros charm bracelet similar to the Milagros charm necklace I had created. I loved the outcome, the combination of vintage and new, the medals with the Milagros and the turquoise with the copper.
