Virgin Mary Cameo Catholic Medals Charm Bracelet

We turn in all our needs to Christ's blessed Mother, Mary,
because we know that our Lord,
as her obedient and loving Son,
can refuse her nothing.
Hence, we turn with confidence to our blessed Lady
as "comforter of the afflicted,"
"the help of Christians,"
"health of the sick,"
and "Virgin most powerful."
Our Virgin Mother still stands by us
as she stood faithfully by the foot of the Cross,
and as she remained praying with His apostles and disciples.
So, too, will she be close to us
when we turn to her in our necessities.

I was inspired to create a bracelet in these colors to honor Our Most beautiful Blessed Mother depicted in this beautiful vintage cameo. This is a replica of the "Madonna of the Magnificant" by famous painter Botticelli. I added a "Bless Our Family" cross with Virgin Mary, Jesus Child and St. Joseph, a crucifix, Our Lady of Medjugorje, St. Francis Xavier, St. Frances Mother Cabrini, Archangel St. Gabriel and others. On center of medal I added a large acrylic flower charm. I also used beautiful natural green jade flowers and gorgeous lampwork beads to create this combination.
