Wearable Sacred Shrine

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 

fiery passion
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

The back of the shrine carries a quote on love

now for sale at Her Grace on Etsy.com
