Love Creating Shrines

For the past few years I was inspired to create small shrines to give honor to all that is Divine, Our Lord, Blessed Mother, Angels and Saints and love creating them.

Recently I created some new designs, besides the locket shrines I created, I also created some that are visible, the pocket statues are inside a glass dome, which I also include a piece of broken rosaries inside.

 I love antique rosaries and when I am able to create a piece using broken rosaries, I create with the utmost respect and use them to give them a new life and they carry the love and prayers of the previous owners and that is why I love to add them to my creations

Here are my newest creations.  In one as I was taking a picture before finishing the necklace, the St. Therese Shrine, I noticed in the picture some sort of reflection on top of the glass and continued to take pictures but, what I thought it was reflections, appears to be some sort of mist, which is not the first time I create a piece honoring St. Therese that a mist appears.   Upon closer look at the picture and enhancing it, I was able to see some faces, some appear to be Saints, one in particular is Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos, which I happen to have a piece of cloth touched to his relic and I also touch my jewelry to his relic.  I will include a picture on the bottom.

The first pictures are of the finished necklaces now available in my Etsy store https://www.etsy.com/shop/angelostreasures







This last picture of the Shrine Dome of St. Therese before creating the necklace, where the mist appears in all of the images and next is a picture of Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos, which I believe appears in the mist, next to St. Therese's face of pocket statue.

My Newest Creations




My newest creations on Necklaces now available in my store, now I am listing only at Angelo's Treasures. These are unique creations I always create with the utmost respect and love to express our faith and devotion. https://www.etsy.com/shop/angelostreasures

When, with a heavy heart decided to close Lety's Creations and not create anymore I had a dream that I was being taken for a ride, I could not see the driver, I just know I was inside a vehicle and I was the passenger and was shown some place, which was very beautiful full of light and were many beautiful homes all with gardens and when we passed by one that had many plants in the garden and several large beautiful statues of Our Blessed Mother, Jesus and Saints I gasped and said "that is my house" is not my real home, then I looked closely and saw the plants were sad, wilted and the statue of Our Blessed Mother was kind of leaning over, like falling and the other statues too and I became sad and I heard a voice telling me they need me to care for them and to continue to water the plants so She can be happy and to continue to care for this garden so She can come alive once again.

I take this dreams means, I need to continue to care for Our Blessed Mother's Garden, which several years ago, I heard this "In the garden of my soul there is a beautiful Rose whose name is Mary" and I have used it in my some of my pages, so I shall continue to take care of Her garden to flourish in people's hearts through my creations and prayers.
I still get teary eyed sharing my dream.

Roses Scent

The weekend of March 11th, I spent it cleaning and reorgonizing my prayer/creation room. I have several religious images that give me inspiration while I create and I have this gorgeous statue of Our Lady of Miraculous Medal on my desk overlooking my creations and that night when I went back into the room the whole room smelled like roses, and not from any oil, like fresh roses. I take it as She is happy.  I feel so blessed to be able to experience it

Altered Art Catholic Wearable Shrines

I love creating altered art shrines as a piece of jewelry to display your faith and devotion and be able to wear and carry with you as you wear it.

Recently I created this piece honoring Our Beloved Sacred Heart of Jesus using a vintage  hand painted pocket statue inside a heart locket and embellished with beautiful rhinestones.

I used one of God's beautiful creations, which are the gemstones  (  showing the beauty in all of God's creation and how we can see God in everything)

Rough 12mm x 22mm Strawberry  Tourmaline;

" The Whole Earth is a living icon of the face of God"  St. John Damascene



I also created these other pieces of altered art shrines honoring Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady of Miraculous Medal - on the Our Lady of Lourdes locket shrine I used stunning vintage celestial aqua color crystals embellishment (signed Wiesner); handmade and hand painted 1 1/4" plaster (sealed) pocket statue of Our Lady of Lourdes, one Hail Mary and one Our Father beads from vintage broken Rosary; beautiful image of Sacred Heart surrounded by angels transfered unto fabric giving it a look and feel of canvas




On the pocket watch shrine honoring Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, I used a pocket watch, which I love because of the glass and it displays beautifully everything inside, specially the pocket staute.   On this necklace I also used a vintage pocket statue and vintage lace
