Handcrafted Catholic Altered Art Religious Bracelet

I wanted to create a bracelet bold enough to make a statement and hope I accomplished that with this bracelet.

I used a large beautiful butterfly on center of bracelet, a beautiful unique large angel holding a cup, an image of St. Therese inside a watch face and altered art charms with Our Blessed Mother on each one, including Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady of Miraculous Medal

The chain is also bold and unique with large links.

St. Theresa The Little Flower of Jesus Photo Frame / Pendant / Plaque

When someone is in the hospital or nursing home you may want to consider adding a Holy picture as a reminder of our faith and with this pendant may be a reminder that with prayer St. Therese will be intervening for you or love one.

I created this pendant with a black and white laser picture of St. Therese inserted between two glass panels and copper frame

I added beautiful vintage lace and adorned it with flower ribbon and lace flower on front.

This pendant is in my Etsy store

I am Blessed

Today I feel so Blessed. God and Our Blessed Mother have been by my side all of my life and today I just could not contain my excitement and tears, of joy, when I received a large package in the mail from one of my favorite return buyers.

She sent me a large box full of misc. beading supplies, cameos and many medals, vintage and new. She wanted to share those with me to continue making my jewelry.

The interesting part is that due to my budget lately I could not buy any more supplies not medals and I was almost running out and to my surprise this box came without her knowing my situation.

I just praise God and Our Blessed Mother knowing my situation made sure I had enough supplies to continue.

I just had to share my wonderful experience.

Thank you Lord and Blessed Mother
Love you

I used older pictures of Sacred Heart of Jesus, that is from a prayer card, the others from my collection, which are St. Rita, Virgin Mary Queen of Heaven, and Immaculate Conception.
I used a beautiful vintage center and double links with several beads and pearls.

Vintage and New Stella Maris Religious Medals Bracelet

Invoked against the Stormy Seas of Life- Sailors
O Mary, Star of the Sea, light of every ocean, guide seafarers across all dark and stormy seas that they may reach the haven of peace and light prepared in Him who calmed the sea.
As we set forth upon the oceans of the world and cross the deserts of our time, show us, O Mary, the fruit of your womb, for without your Son we are lost.
Pray that we will never fail on life's journey, that in heart and mind, in word and deed, in days of turmoil and in days of calm, we will always look to Christ and say, "Who is this that even wind and sea obey him?" Bright Star of the Sea, guide us!
