OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE CAMEO CATHOLIC NECKLACE


In 1531 a "Lady from Heaven" appeared to a poor Indian at Tepeyac, a hill northwest of Mexico City; she identified herself as the Mother of the True God, instructed him to have the bishop build a temple on the site and left an image of herself imprinted miraculously on his tilma, a poor quality cactus-cloth, which should have deteriorated in 20 years but shows no sign of decay 474 years later and still defies all scientific explanations of its origin.

I created this necklace in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe in a very unique way. I added brass embellishments to a resin cameo of Our Blessed Mother, an Immaculate Heart of Mary rosary center, Vintage Catholic medals, Jesus Christ Child, Angels, Miraculous Medal.

I also added a piece of a broken rosary which are ten Hail Marys made with Fresh Water Pearls and a real dried rose and other vintage pieces.
