O Immaculate Virgin Mary,
Mother of Mercy,
You are the refuge of sinners,
the health of the sick,
and the comfort of the afflicted.
You know my wants,
my troubles, my sufferings.
By Your appearance
at the Grotto of Lourdes
You made it a privileged sanctuary
where Your favors are given to people
streaming to it from the whole world.
Over the years countless sufferers
have obtained the cure for their infirmities -
whether of soul, mind, or body.
Therefore I come to You
with limitless confidence
to implore Your motherly intercession.
Obtain, O loving Mother,
the grant of my requests.
Through gratitude for Your favors,
I will endeavor to imitate Your virtues,
that I may one day share in Your glory.

This is a unique necklace I created using a vintage broken rosary, vintage pendant and an image of Child Jesus from an antique Holy Card from Holy Card Heaven inside a pocket watch and used vintage and new rhinestones.
I am fascinated with vintage images and have been inspired by creations using such beautiful images that I found myself making one with this beautiful image.
