Details

"To design this necklace, I was inspired by the shape of the milagros mexicanos or 'Mexican miracles,' a custom still preserved by many Catholic Mexicans, who will pin a steel brooch in the shape of a body part to a saint's robe. The brooch represents an ailment in that specific part," says Maria Belen Nilson as she explains the surreal essence of this handcrafted sterling silver pendant necklace. At the center, three doves spread their wings while becoming the face of a woman with eyes downcast. The artisan crafts the necklace with an oxidized finish on the main body of the pendants and a contrasting highly polished finish on the pendulum-like dangle.

"beautiful but fragile"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this artist's work, but this necklace broke in half before I had a chance to put it on. One of the tiny jump rings, that was soldered on, had popped off. I've worked a little with jewelry and was able to jerryrig it back together. I didn't want to send it back as I love it so. But I am nervous with it and handling it very delicately.
