The beaded section joins with a delicate chain with
the mystical rose locket on the one side
and a crown on the other

The Mary, Queen of Peace
prayer from the Hail Mary on the back
of the holy card


a silver plated miraculous medal
which I bought at the tiny convent shop
at the Chapel of the Miraculous Medal in Paris, France
dangles at the end of the chain,
and it will hang on the back of the neck

vintage swarovski rondelles
fresh water pearls

Each one of my pendants, shrines, paintings and other sacred art are first infused with holy water from Lourdes (which I brought back), and then infused with holy relic oil of more than 53 Saints & pure essential oils. A mixture of one hundred oils are used, including frankincense, myrrh, spikenard, agarwood and rose. It is also immersed in blessed pink dead sea salts, infused with rose petals steeped in holy oil of a third relic of St Therese of Lisieux and it is packaged with blessed salts, frankincense and sprinkled with holy water collected form many sacred places in the world. So it becomes a holy object to be handled with reverence and care.

L'immaculee Conception - I am the Immaculate Conception

SOLD


I am the Immaculate Conception
was her words to Bernadette


She was a poor shepherdess,
Bernadette,
growing up at the foothills of the Pyrenees,
on the banks of the Gave du Pau.
Tending the very poor family's
small flock of sheep
When the most miraculous vision 
appeared to her.
A vision of Light
with roses on Her feet.
From this numinous event
flowed forth a stream of healing water,
a holy place was born,
Bernadette's life was transformed
into one of passion,
commitment and a vocation to the highest Love


Bernadette's message : God is everywhere!

A place where the fire was lit long ago
and the fire of your Soul
and Its unconditional love
is kept alive

And such is the miracle within our own hearts
as She brings forth the waters of regeneration,
healing and wholeness,
teaching you that Love is everywhere

A sacred item : A hand made shadowbox to be worn as an altar I took this very unusual vintage holy lace card of the Sacred Heart of Mary and placed it, along with a piece of vintage lace, between two pieces of glass. Hand soldered with silver lead free solder.

Attached to the shrine at the top is an onyx cross and at the bottom is a sterling silver hand cast sacred heart with a miniature sterling silver heart and swarovski beads as well as a very old blue plastic holy medal. The shrine is suspended from a double sided Madonna and Child/Sacred Heart of Jesus rosary connector.

The necklace is made of beautiful blue aurora borealis beads, cracked glass beads, red roses, swarovski crystals, vintage rondelle beads and czech fired crystals.

Each piece is unique and individual and an original. Every wearable altar, shrine and pendant carries the signature of the artisan (me) engraved on a sterling silver leaf, or on the back of a sterling silver hand cast icon, hanging on the necklace.

Each one of my pendants, shrines, paintings and other sacred art are first infused with holy water from Lourdes (which I brought back), and then infused with holy relic oil of more than 53 Saints & pure essential oils. A mixture of one hundred oils are used, including frankincense, myrrh, spikenard, agarwood and rose. It is also immersed in blessed pink dead sea salts, infused with rose petals steeped in holy oil of a third relic of St Therese of Lisieux and it is packaged with blessed salts, frankincense and sprinkled with holy water collected form many sacred places in the world. So it becomes a holy object to be handled with reverence and care.

Notre Dame de Paris



Notre Dame de Paris
Our Lady of Paris




A Sacred Altar


Each tiny disk contains the image of
Notre Dame and on the back
the rose window in the Notre Dame Cathedral



a tiny vintage Miraculous Medal


an elegant chain with tiny dangle at end
at the closure of necklace


a holy card set in an aged
brass filligree frame
with a tiny brass cross underneath



Pieces of a magnificent rosary brought back
from Notre Dame de Paris.  I brought this rosary
back from my previous pilgrimage to France and only now
have had the time to use it in a wearable altar.

The pieces are solid brass and the detail magnificent.

with love,
Hettienne
