I am very pleased with my handiwork!
This is my first soldered pendant.
I used silver solder and a vintage image of the Madonna.
I found this image on www.beta.dawn.com
of pilgrims on a trek to honour the Black Madonna in Spain
and this is the 'feel' that I tried to recreate with this pendant.
black rose shaped beads in a traditional rosary
a tiny silver heart dangling at the top
blooming into a single rose
(hand made glass lampwork rose)
shooting out into a spanish crown
the traditional cross at the end of a rosary
replaced with a crowned sacred heart
