Salutation to the Blessed Virgin Mary Hail, Holy Lady, most holy Queen,Mary, Mother of God, ever-virgin;Chosen by the most Holy Father in Heaven, consecrated by Him with His most Holy and beloved Son and the Holy Spirit, the Comforter.On You descended and in You still remains all the fullness of grace and every good.Hail, His palace.Hail, His tabernacle.Hail, His robe.Hail, His handmaid.Hail, His mother.And hail, all holy virtues,who by the grace and inspiration of the Holy Spirit are poured into the hearts of the faithful so that, faithless no longer, they may be faithful servants of God through You.
St. Francis of Assisi
I had the inspiration to create a shrine style necklace with this very unique vintage statue of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, since it is a large statue, I placed it on a filigree stamping and added flowers, faux pearls and a St. Jude medal.
I also added a vintage medal of Jesus Christ with communion. The necklace is made with vintage acrylic beads. I had a vintage necklace which I took apart to create a new style of link necklace.
I love vintage beads and medals, they have such an appeal
