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.
