Milagros "Miracles" are small devotional charms that are traditionally used in most Latin American Countries. These votives are placed in small shrines, church, nichos, retablos, saints or altars.
Milagros also refers to an ancient aspect of Hispanic Folk Culture: Small silver or gold votive offerings.
A person attaches a Milagro to a saint for a special request of a miracle for a particular aliment of the body.
On this special handcrafted bracelet I added vintage style milagros charms including Sacred Heart of Jesus, Woman's head, girl, woman praying, animals, house, vintage clay bird beads some from Mexico and others from Peru.
I also added stabilized turquoise, coral and Peruvian beads.
