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
