Our Lady of Loreto Charm Bracelet

The Holy House of Loreto, the house in which Our Blessed Mother was born, and in which the Annunciation occurred, is the first shrine of international renown dedicated to the Blessed Virgin, and has been a true Marian center of Christianity for several centuries.
In its original form, the Holy House had only three walls because the eastern side, where the altar now stands, opened onto a Grotto. The three original walls, two of which can be seen on the sides of the chapel in the picture, rise to a height of three meters. The masonry above, made of local bricks, was added later including the vault (in 1536), to make the place more suitable for worship.
The Popes have always held the Shrine of Loreto in special esteem, taking it directly under their authority because of the "divine mysteries which took place there."
OUR LADY OF LORETO PROTECT MY FLIGHT
Our lady of Loreto, benevolent Patroness of aviators, protect and guide me on my flight. Look upon me with your gentleness, O Mary, and upon all travel with.
Shelter us from harm, Blessed Mother, and lead us safely to our destiny

On this bracelet I used a very unique vintage medal of Our Lady of Loreto with St. Petrus on reverse side. I also used a Lady of Medjugorje medal directly from Medjugorje. Other Catholic medals includes figural medal of Virgin Mary with Baby Jesus, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Sorrowful Mother crucifix and other medal.
It has a vintage look due to bead caps have that appearance and agate gemstone used is rough therefore, having chips and not lustrous.
