Our Lady of Lujan Charm Bracelet

It was made in Brazil and sent to Argentina in May 1630. Its original appearance seemed inspired by Murillo's Immaculates. In 1887, to preserve and protect it, the image was given a solid silver covering. It is usually clothed with a white robe and sky blue cloak, the colors of the Argentinian flag. Only the dark oval face with big blue eyes and the hands folded in prayer are now visible.

I was blessed to find this vintage medal of Our Lady of Lujan. The medal itself is from Argentina. I surrounded this beautiful medal with many other Catholic medals including Holy Trinity, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Guadalupe with Holy Child of Atocha and others including an ornate crucifix.
