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.
