Memories And Thank You Blog Hop

Memories and Thanks Blog Hop begins today, hosted by Lori Anderson at  Pretty Things.  Have a look.

I made this bracelet in memory of my Madrina Teresa (Godmother Teresa).  She was the person who helped me discover my creativity.  She never married and my brothers and sisters and I were her "kids" and we all loved her dearly.  We all still speak about her and remember how so very kind and giving she was.  I remember her soft words, always.

I composed a religious theme bracelet in her honor because she was a devote Catholic who attended Mass on a daily basis - she exuded kindness, charity, and love.  Every time I think about her, it brings a smile, Oh, how I miss her.

This is Madrina Teresa as a very young girl.  I tried a new resin product to that cured with a UV light to imbed her image.  Didn't work very good, oh well.

I made a soldered crystal with an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus adhered to the back along with a piece of scripture.

I just love these pearl crosses. 

I used vintage chain, freshwater baroque pearls, Czech crystal and gold filled wire. To finish it I used a 16mm Miriam Haskell vintage pearl.  

See the bubbles?

I hope you are enjoying visiting everyone and you have enjoyed your visit with me.  Oh, and I must not forget to tell you, Madrina Teresa was daughter of my Peppa who I named my blog after.

Thank you Lori.  God's blessing to you.

Creating for the greater good.
