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
