ABOUT RETABLOS:

A retablo in Mexican Folk Art  is a devotional painting, especially a small popular or Folk Art one using iconography  derived from traditional Catholic church art. Retablos are painted pictures of Saints on any thing of a flat surface,normally on wood or tin.Carlos stepped out of the box & created this masterpiece in sterling exclusively for "Plata de Santa Fe Jewelry",which you never see in retablos,which makes this totally unique & one of a kind.

DESCRIPTION:

Made for the woman who loves large,bold,one of a kind,statement & very showy collar necklaces...Everything about this screams "Statement"..Five graduating in size,Guadalupe retablos are placed on large,bold,16 mm sterling Navajo Pearls..Each follow beautifully in the whole upper chest region & are at a length where statement pieces can't help but catch the viewers eye..The "S" wire at the top of the Guadalupe is soldered tight to a single oxidized,but un-blackened bead that were made by Carlos..

 

From the Guadalupe's luminous glowing light surrounding her, that is reminiscent of the woman who is 'clothed with the sun", to her folded hands in prayer,to her eyes looking down with humility & passion,to the angel that supports her that testifies to her royalty,with her being displayed with a crown on her head...All of these,Carlos has made sure not to neglect,in the making,with each & every detail,from 1st being drawn out,then sawing the design &then placing her on a dark oxidized background,enhancing every speck of detail.

 

This necklace takes 3 weeks to make & there is so much that goes into making it 'right'!

This is a very large,bulkier necklace & if I can honestly speak,this looks better on a taller woman,that has a  broader upper chest & one who is not petite.
