Chalice of Love

a vintage card
carefully mounted in gold corners
backed onto black velvet

a cross blooming forth from a field of roses

pieces of vintage mother of pearl rosaries
swarovski crystals
silver medals

arms open in blessing and embrace

Shrine to the Sacred Heart of Yeshua, Jesus the Christ

Chalice of Love

Beyond dogma,
beyond religions,
beyond prejudice,
beyond human mind
is a Chalice of Love
radiating the Heart of the Christ



  1. Oh that is just beautiful Hettienne. I love it. Is it a wooden box? Great work. Have a great day.

  2. Thank you Gloria! Yes, it is a wooden box that I paint and then line in layers with paper and cloth. This one is lined with pages from an old Bible and then layers of velvet paper (yes!) on top.


Thank you for your comments - I read each and every one! I have taken the word verification off - hope it makes it easier
