ABOUT 'MILAGROS'

Milagros are small metal religious charms found in many areas of Latin America, especially Mexico and Peru.  The word “Milagro” means “miracle”.  They are also used in Europe, where they are often referred to as Exvotos (Offerings).  These small charms, often depicting arms, legs, praying people, farm animals and a wide range of other subjects are typically nailed or pinned to crosses or wooden statues of various saints like the Virgin Mary or Christ, sacred objects, pinned on the clothing of saint statues, or hung with little red ribbons or threads from altars and shrines.  They are also carried for protection and good luck.!!

DESCRIPTION:

Designed in a very vintage style finish,this earring is made where the Sacred Heart,a hand & a turtle milagro are nailed to the cross & cover the center of portion of the cross.Hands dangle from the "T-Bar" portion & give these almost a Oaxaca "Yalalag Cross" look.If you look at the backside of the earring,you will see circle forms which replicate them being nailed to the cross.(see photos)

Hands have special representation in Mexican jewelry.They represent the power of healing,doing the impossible,to which is a infinite power & also a symbol to "tighten the hands of friendship".

This is Carlos's original design & were 1st drawn out by him,in order to cast the small size items.

They will be a hit with any Mexican wardrobe & because of them being all sterling,you can pair these with colored stone or all sterling jewelry!
