“But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.”- Luke 2:19.
I don’t often create spiritual jewelry, but something moved me to create these Immaculate Heart bracelets. The designing and crafting of these bracelets were a labor of love for me.
The Immaculate Heart of Mary represents her fullness in Grace, which emanates from the very center of her being and is the source of her purity. These semi-precious gemstone beaded bracelets were lovingly crafted as a devotional to Mary’s Immaculate Heart.
They were crafted using the following natural semi-precious stones: Rose Quartz, Aquamarine, Mother of Pearl, Garnet, Green Jade, Howlite, Amazonite, and Black Lava Stone.
Included with these bracelets are silver “Miraculous Medals” that were crafted in Italy. The medals are about 1 inch long and are inscribed on both the front and back in the traditional way.
Vintage silver toggle clasps finish these bracelets off. Bracelets are approximately 8 inches long. I can always add an extender chain if a longer length is needed, or I can swap out the toggle clasp for cable chain to have an adjustable length instead.
