Immaculate Heart of Mary Altered Art Religious Necklace

Our Lady of The Sacred Heart

Remember, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, what ineffable power thy divine Son hath given thee over His own adorable Heart. Full of trust in thy merits, we come before thee and beg thy protection. O heavenly Treasurer of the Heart of Jesus, that Heart which is the inexhaustible source of all graces, which thou mayest open to us at thy good pleasure, in order that from it may flow forth upon mankind the riches of love and mercy, light and salvation, that are contained therein; grant unto us, we beseech thee, the favors which we seek. . . . We can never, never be refused by thee, and since thou art our Mother, O our Lady of the Sacred Heart, graciously hear our prayers and grant our request. Amen

This is an spectacular necklace I created in honor of Our Blessed Mother Immaculate Heart.

I used a beautiful vintage cameo and adorned it with vintage and new findings, pearls and rhinestones.

I just love creating such pieces. The process is long but truly a blessing to be able to see the end result.

When I begin such piece I don't know what I will add and it's amazing how just everything starts coming together and each piece just compliments each other. It is truly a joy to create one.

I created it as a portable shrine to St. Anthony and St. Joseph. I used a tiny pocket statue of St. Joseph, a tiny medal of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, praying hands and a tiny cross.
