The Holy Shroud of Oviedo

The Sudarium is referred to in John 20:5-8.

The Sudarium of Oviedo, or Shroud of Oviedo, is a bloodstained cloth, 34" x 21", kept in the cathedral of Oviedo, Spain and claimed to be the cloth that was wrapped around the head of Jesus of Nazareth after he died (Head-veil of Christ).

Adorable Face of Jesus, whom all the angels adore,

may You be known, loved and adored by the whole world.

Sacred Face of Jesus, I desire to love and honor You more and more,

in reparation for the many sins committed before You.

O Sacred Face of Jesus veiled in the Adorable Sacrament of the Altar;

I Adore You and Love You.

I feel so blessed to have been able to touch and own one of this special relics, literally, tears roll down my cheeks when I touch this medal and start creating a bracelet in the honor of Our Lord. I cannot imagine what He had to endure for us, the pain and distress.
I create a bracelet with the out most respect and love for Our Lord and I use the relic medal in my bracelets because I want it to be a constant reminder to the wearer of Our Lord's ultimate sacrifice and not just place the medal in a jewelry box or out of sight.

I also used a 14K goldplated medal of Our Lady of Fatima, a vintage medal of Sacred Heart of Jesus, made in Western Germany, St. Michael, St. Theresa, Virgin Mary, Miraculous Medal.
I used natural ruby jade teardrop-shape beads to represent Our Lord's blood. I also used cream color pearls and Czech. glass beads.
Let this bracelet be a reminder of Our Lord's suffering and ultimate sacrifice.
