Jesus Locket Altered Art Necklace

I created another inspirational and meaningful altered art locket necklace.

I created it as a shrine to Our Lord, Infant of Prague and St. Martin de Porres to be able to carry with you all the time.

The cameo I set it in a beautiful ornate setting and then added it to the locket and adorning it with beautiful amber color rhinestones.

St. Martin de Porres
(He was venerated from the day of his death. Many miraculous cures, including raising the dead attributed to Brother Martin. First black American saint. Also known as Martin of Charity; the Saint of the Broom (for his devotion to his work, no matter how menial) Established an orphanage and children’s hospital for the poor children of the slums. Set up a shelter for the stray cats and dogs and nursed them back to health. Lived in self-imposed austerity, never ate meat, fasted continuously, and spent much time in prayer and meditation with a great devotion to the Holy Eucharist.

Inside locket I added a tiny pocket statue of Infant of Prague, medal of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, tiny cross, three Hail Mary beads from vintage broken rosary.
Other side I added a picture of St. Martin de Porres from prayer card.
