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.

I always feel so blessed when I'm able to find so unique medals from Beloved Saints that we don't see any medals from or hardly hear from them and why they are venerated and it is an honor to be able to create with such treasures.

This is a vintage medal of St. Martin de Porres with a very unique finish and it's always an honor as well to bring to light St. Martin de Porres in my creations.

I used many other Catholic medals including Our Lady of Fatima, Holy Family, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Lady of Czestochowa, Divine Mercy, Pope John Paul II, St. Faustina, St. Therese and others and beads are natural Jade.

Virgin Mary Catholic Locket Shrine Religious Necklace

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.


This is another locket necklace I was inspired to create honoring Our Most Beautiful Mother Mary using a picture from an antique Holy card transferred onto fabric that gives it a look
and finish of canvas
I used a vintage blue rhinestone brooch to use as a frame and I also used turquoise color Czech. rhinestones, beautiful light blue glass beads and brass color beads.

Blessings from Above

For a long time I have been fascinated by one of God’s creations which are gemstones and I know they Bring God's and Our Blessed Mother’s Love and Light within each one of them for humanity to use as a tool for our well being and when I read about St. Hildegard’s visions and how intensively she wrote on God’s purpose for us to use such gemstones and when St. Catherine Labour saw Our Blessed Mother's fingers covered with gemstones I was more interested in using them for one of the purposes God intended use for such Beautiful creation but I didn’t continue with my search until It came to me in form of a dream that I was guided to start creating pieces with such gemstones and a special way to use them and when I was shown the gemstones and the metal and I was told that they absorb negative energy and transform it Into positive energy but with a special matrix and also to read Psalm 142 when I saw all the gemstones and a clear plastic and metal then the medal of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal appeared on the center of all the gemstones and they all in unity were sending pure glowing white light and appeared to me as a pure Blessing as if they were emanating God’s and Our Blessed Mother’s essence.

The next day I was so excited and so much at peace and felt Our Blessed Mother’s Love that I wanted to create one and I tried creating it, but it wasn’t quite getting the plastic part, then a couple of weeks later while searching for more St. Michael prayers I came across information talking about the orgonite energy and I was just blown away that was my dream about the energy stones emanate and after much practice I began creating some pieces and sharing with others in my family and all with great results, everything positive, people do notice the change they have been making in their life, more at peace and other changes that seems to harmonize their environment and I’m so excited to be able to incorporate them in my creations. These changes maybe subtle but positive. These are not talismans or such, these are pieces With one of God’s creations to be used as a beneficial tool in our life in prayer and expressing more Love towards others and our planet.

I will be including in most of my pieces medals of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal and angels due to previous dreams seeing angels with gemstones and I know I will be adding other medals as well as a reminder that God’s beauty and essence is in every natural piece of this earth.

This is one of the first bracelets I created using this special pendant of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal and using Garnet and gold flakes

On this pendant honoring St. Michael and all the Archangels that surround us I added gold flakes as well and also Garnet, I often find myself just starring at this pieces that just admiring God's creations floating inside this resin and eminating His beauty

Some are created with gemstones and others with crystals

"Love Stream" Our Lady of Lourdes Cameo Catholic Bracelet

Oh ever immaculate Virgin, Mother of Mercy,
Health of the Sick,
Refuge of Sinners,
Comfortess of the Afflicted,
You know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings.
Look upon me with mercy.
When You appeared in the grotto of Lourdes,
You made it a privileged sanctuary
where You dispense Your favors,
and where many sufferers
have obtained the cure of their infirmities,
both spiritual and corporal.
I come, therefore,
with unbounded confidence
to implore Your maternal intercession.
My loving Mother, obtain my request.
I will try to imitate Your virtues
so that I may one day
share Your company and bless You in eternity.

On this bracelet I wanted to convey a message "Love Stream".
Her endless Love for us has been given to us in many, many ways and places and one of those ways is the endless Spring at the Grotto

May the Stream of Her Love fill you with joy and love
