Virgin Mary OL Victory, Saints Religious Medal Bracelet


Remember, O most gracious

Virgin Mary, that never was it

Known that any one who

Fled to thy protection, implored

Thy help, and sought thy

Intercession, was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,

I fly unto thee, O Virgin of

Virgins, my Mother, to thee I

Come, before thee I stand sinful

And sorrowful. O mother

Of the Word Incarnate! Despise

Not my petitions, but, in

Thy mercy, hear and answer



I created this bracelet with an explosion of colors making Honor of Our Glorious Lady of Victory.

I used many styles of beads, shapes and colors vary from Czech. glass to lampwork. Catholic medals include Our Lady of Medjugorje, Pieta, St. Cabrini, St. Michael and others.

I Love this figural medal of Our Lady of Victory with Baby Jesus, it's so unique.

Vintage and New Virgin Mary Cameo Religious Medal Bracelet

Father, You prepared the Virgin Mary
to be the worthy mother of Your Son.
You let Her share beforehand
in the salvation Christ would bring by His death,
and kept Her sinless
from the first moment of Her conception.
Help us by Her prayers to live in Your presence
without sin.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Your Son, who lives and reigns
with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

"Precious Love"

There is no love more precious than Our Blessed Mother's and Our Lord's.
Her love and care depicted on this beautiful cameo

I created this bracelet as a reminder of that special Precious Love that She loves us as much as She Loves Our Lord

I used a stunning cameo depicting Our Blessed Mother with Baby Jesus set in antiqued setting.
Most of the medals are vintage

Jesus Relic, St Therese Reliquary Religious Necklace


Adorable Face of Jesus, whom all the angels adore,

may You be known, loved and adored by the whole world.

Sacred Face of Jesus, I desire to love and honor You more and more,

in reparation for the many sins committed before You.

O Sacred Face of Jesus veiled in the Adorable Sacrament of the Altar;

I Adore You and Love You.

St. Therese is a great inspiration of her fervent devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus for this unique necklace I created.

There was such a special energy and love I felt while I was creating this necklace and I wanted to convey that love and her devotion using a St. Therese medal attached to the locket holding such special meaningful relic medal with piece of cloth touched to the Holy Shroud of Oviedo.

It is a very special relic that also means a lot to me, it keeps me with the vivid remider of Our Lord's ultimate sacrifice and His love for us.

The Sudarium of Oviedo, or Shroud of Oviedo, is a bloodstained cloth, 34" x 21", kept in the cathedral of Oviedo, Spain and claimed to be the cloth that was wrapped around the head of Jesus of Nazareth after he died (Head-veil of Christ).

“How much good the Holy Face has done me during my life.” St. Therese

I attached the relic by sewing it to a piece of vintage lace and adorning it with aluminium roses and vintage rhinestones

St. Martin de Porres Religious Medals Charm Bracelet

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.

known for his tender care of the sick and for his spectacular cures.

St. Martin de Porres is one of my favorite Saints, I remember growing up always seeing His image at my mother's home and I would love just to look at it, it would bring me so much peace. At that time I was very young and didn't know much about Saints.

My mother would tell me about them but I could not comprehend at that age why they would want to help us, now I thank God that I grew up with such faith and was able to comprehend such honor to have such Saints intercede for us.

To create this bracelet I used a very unique and beautiful vintage medal of St. Martin de Porres to create this bracelet in his honor.

I used several other Catholic medals including gold tone in color images and silvertone oxidized Italian medals including Guardian Angel, Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, St. Padre Pio and others.

A Blessing

For several days now I have been feeling Our Lord's Love and presence more than ever and His comfort and Our Blessed Mother's Love as well.

I just love creating my jewelry and to bring His and Our Blessed Mother's Love to others.

Friday and today were another Blessing for me with my granddaughter Amaya, she is just so special.

On Friday I could feel Our Lord's and Blessed Mother's energy in my house and again, she, my
granddaughter went to my Pieta statue and just was caressing Our Lord and Blessed Mother and kissing them, I could not take pictures then because I was charging my camera batteries but today I was able to capture that special moment again, chills all over my body with that special beautiful energy while this was going on.

This is the third time she has done this and it just amazes me every time.

It just amazes me that such a small child can also sense the special Spiritual energy and she knows that the statue represents and wants to make Our Lord and Blessed Mother feel better, it just feels me with so much joy and love.

"Precious Blood" Greatest Love Religious Medal Bracelet

Canticle of the Blood
By Saint Maria
de Mattias

Come, let us adore Christ, the Son of God,
who has redeemed us with His blood.

Clap your hands, all you peoples,
sing unto God with a voice of jubilation.

For You, God, glorious and mighty,
have shown us mercy.

You have not spared Your only Son
but delivered Him up in our behalf.

That You might redeem us from
our sins in Christ’s own blood;

That justified in the blood of Jesus
You might turn Your anger from us;

That we who were separated might
be reconciled through the blood of Christ.

O God, my God, what can I render
to You for all the good You have bestowed upon me?

I will take the chalice of salvation,
and I will call upon the power of Christ’s blood.

Sing to Jesus, all you saints, and
make known the memory of His Holiness.

For Christ indeed has loved us and
washed us in His blood and has
become our helper and redeemer.

May Christ be blessed forever who
has wrought such wonders in us.

Blessed be Jesus for all ages, and
may the heavens and the earth
be filled with the praises of His love.

Come, let us adore Christ, the Son
of God, who has redeemed us with His blood. Amen.

This is another meaningful bracelet I created that makes us reflect on Our Lord's Love for humanity and His sacrifice.

I asked Jesus, "How much do you love me?"

"This much," He said.

And He stretched out His arms, and He died.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Son, that we should not die, but have eternal life!

~ John 3:16

"Sacrificial Love" Catholic Religious Medals Bracelet

I compassionate thee,
O most sorrowful Mother!
Thy heart was pierced
with a sword of grief
when Simeon foretold
to thee in the Temple
the ignominious death
and the desolation
of thy Divine and most dear Son,
which thou west destined
one day to witness.
By the great anguish
of thy suffering heart,
O gracious Queen of the universe,
impress upon my mind,
in life and in death,
the sacred Passion of Jesus
and shine own sorrows.


I was inspired to create another very unique, symbolic and meaningful bracelet representing Our Lord's and Blessed Mother's Sacrificial Love

I used a our Lady of Sorrows vintage cameo as Her Sacrificial Love because as a mother knowing Her son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, will come to redeem us for Love She offered Herself to offer a Mother's Love to Our Lord and the anguish to surrender Him

Every time I create a bracelet with Our Lady of Sorrows, it brings me to tears to just imagine the pain of a mother for the love of humanity surrendered Her Son to such horrible death and the sacrifice Our Lord made for His Love as well

I used clear teardrop-shape beads to represent Our Lady's Tears

St Benedict

Patronage: Against evil, witchcraft; against poison, civil engineers, dying people


The power of St. Benedict is revealed in this small object that has been fostered by his spiritual sons many years. Marvelous is the aid which the St. Benedict Medal affords to its devout wearers in the manifold necessities of soul and body. On this account the Medal is well known and widely used throughout the Christian world; everywhere it is regarded as a highly favored object of devotion.

St. Benedict (born at Nursia, Italy, in 480) had a profound veneration for the holy Cross and for our Saviour Crucified. In virtue of the Sign of the Cross, he wrought many miracles and exercised great power over the spirits of darkness. In consequence of the great veneration in which St. Benedict was held from the early Middle Ages, it followed that a Medal was struck, one side of which represents St. Benedict holding the Cross in one hand and the Holy Rule in the other. Around the image of St. Benedict are these words in Latin "May his presence protect us in the hour of death." St. Benedict has ever been the patron of the dying, because of the circumstances attending his own most glorious death, for he breathed forth his soul while standing in prayer before the Most Blessed Sacrament.

The reverse of the Medal shows the image of the Cross. Around the margin are the initials of Latin words which form verses supposed to have originated with the holy Father Benedict himself. The English translation is: "Be gone Satan! Suggest not to me thy vain things. The cup thou profferest me is evil; drink thou thy poison." In the angles formed by the arms of the Cross are the letters C.S.P.B., signifying "Cross of the holy Father Benedict." The letters on the Cross itself have this meaning: "May the holy Cross be my light; let not the dragon be my guide."

Medals of Saint Benedict are sacramentals that may be blessed legitimately by any priest or deacon


Glorious St. Benedict, sublime model of virtue, pure vessel of God's grace! Behold me humbly kneeling at your feet. I implore you in your loving kindness to pray for me before the throne of God. To you I have recourse in the dangers that daily surround me. Shield me against my selfishness and my indifference to God and to my neighbor. Inspire me to imitate you in all things. May your blessing be with me always, so that I may see and serve Christ in others and work for His kingdom.

What a blessing it is to feel the protection of such a divine Saint that God has granted the power to intercede for us in our time of need. May St. Benedict be that Saint when you find yourself needed a special protection from evil.

I created this bracelet with a very unique antique-style medal of St. Benedict. Other Catholic medals I added are St. Therese, large crucifix, Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Jude, Archangel Gabriel and others.

I added a stunning large vintage button on center of bracelet.

This is a vintage medal and used other vintage and new Catholic medals including Our Lord Jesus Christ, Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, Our Lady of Providence, St. Michael, St. Therese, St. Jude and others.

I used aqua color Czech. glass beads representing water and one stunning glass lampwork bead holding Our Lady's medal.

"By His Wounds" Catholic Religious Medal Necklace

Prayer to Christ in His Passion and Death
Hail, sweet Jesus! Praise, honor, and glory be to Thee,
O Christ, who of Thine own accord didst embrace death,
and, recommending Thyself to Thy heavenly Father,
bowing down Thy venerable head, didst yield up Thy spirit.
Truly thus giving up Thy life for Thy sheep,
Thou hast shown Thyself to be a good shepherd.
Thou didst die, O only-begotten Son of God.
Thou didst die, O my beloved Saviour, that I might live forever.
O how great hope, how great confidence have
I reposed in Thy death and Thy Blood!
I glorify and praise Thy Holy Name,
acknowledging my infinite obligations to Thee.
O good Jesus, by Thy bitter death and Passion,
give me grace and pardon.
Give unto the faithful departed rest and life everlasting.

"By His Wounds"

"By His wounds we are healed"

I created this necklace as a reminder of the Ultimate Sacrifice of Our Lord for His Love for us and used red Garnet gemstone beads to represent His Precious Blood.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Cameo, Saints Religious Bracelet


O Virgin of Guadalupe,
Mother of the Americas,
grant to our homes the grace of loving
and respecting life in its beginnings,
with the same love with which
you conceived in your womb
the life of the Son of God.
Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of Fair Love,
protect our families so that
they may always be united
and bless the upbringing of our children.

Our hope, look upon us with pity,
teach is to go continually to Jesus,
and if we fall
help us to rise again and return to Him
through the confession of our faults
and our sins in the Sacrament of penance,
which gives peace to the soul.

We beg you to grant us a great love
of all the holy Sacraments,
which are, as it were,
the signs that your Son left us on earth.
Thus, Most Holy Mother,
with the peace of God in our consciences,
with our hearts free from evil and hatred,
we will be able to bring to all others
true joy and peace,
which come to us from your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
who with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
lives and reigns for ever and ever.


(Pope John Paul II.)

I found some beautiful lace setting to enhance the beauty of this beautiful vintage cameo of Our Lady of Guadalupe. It just gives it more life.

I love adding roses to Our Lady of Guadalupe bracelets symbolizing the roses given to St. Juan Diego.

I added handcrafted angels as well as other Catholic medals.

OL Fatima Altered Art Locket Religious Necklace

O Most Holy Virgin Mary,
Queen of the most Holy Rosary,
you were pleased to appear to the children of Fatima
and reveal a glorious message.
We implore you,
inspire in our hearts a fervent love
for the recitation of the Rosary.
By meditating on the mysteries of the redemption
that are recalled therein
may we obtain the graces and virtues that we ask,
through the merits of Jesus Christ,
our Lord and Redeemer.

This is another meaningful locket shrine necklace I created honoring Our Beautiful Lady of Fatima. I love creating these necklaces because besides making a statement of faith, it is an piece of jewelry that also touches someone else's life.

I've received emails from persons that have bought some of my necklaces and they share their stories on how it brings someone to the conversation of faith and in some cases the people needed it.

I know Our Blessed Mother and Our Lord guide the people wearing them to the people that need it.

Inside this locket I added a beautiful picture of Our Lady of Altagracia adorned with rhinestones and on other side I added a vintage rhinestone crown representing Our Lady's Crown
