Years ago I incorporated Catholic medals into my work, using Mary medals specifically in the place of stones in sterling settings. I liked the idea of taking an antique object, filled with the energy and beauty of a stranger's prayers and hopes and sorrows and joys...and offering those objects up in a new design that could carry forward the energy of faith...bringing strangers together the way a church brings strangers together, under the banner of the shared beauty, healing and brokenness of humanity. How powerful!
I source my vintage Catholic medals from near and far, this one came to me from Belgium and is cast sterling silver -- it is NOT silver plated. I've paired it with minty turquoise, set on two layers of heavy sterling with a SUPREMELY burly hand fabricated band. This ring is rich and beautiful. It looks like a holy relic. Just gorgeous. Wear it and be reminded of all that it means to be human and know you aren't alone in your struggles and your joy. We're with you.
This ring measures a US Ring Size 7 on a mandrel and it fits a smidge smaller than a size 6.5 due to the super wide band.
