Sacré Coeur de Marie - wearable shrine

Sacré Coeur de Marie - The Sacred Heart of Mary
wearable shrine

I made this beautiful miniature shadowbox as a wearable rosary shrine
altar of the sacred heart of Mary.

It is in the shape of a cathedral window, soldered with lead free solder.

Inside is an image of a vintage prayer card with a tiny
seed pearl halo.
I placed a sterling silver hand cast sacred heart on top
of the image of her sacred heart.

Just above the box is a sterling silver vintage Ave Maria rosary connector.

Here you can see the depth of the shrine

On the back is a portion of a french prayer card 
and another sterling silver hand cast sacred heart dangles on the back.

The rosary necklace contains beautiful crystal beads
in shades of pale pink and amber which allows for the
light to play through

and the piece de resistance
is the beautiful sterling silver hand cast hand holding a heart
amplifying the beautiful hands of Mary on the holy card
which says 'compassion' much more powerfully
than any words possibly could.

A daily reminder that your heart is connected to the heart of Mary.

May her compassion bless you and your days.
