Milagros (miracles) or ex voto belong to the world of folk religion and have been part of that tradition in the Mediterranean world and Latin America for centuries. The wearing of an amulet or the offering of a milagro 'provide a means through which people can reflect upon and tell their life stories and those of others and help to make sense of human experiences... they are windows into the variety of lived religious worlds' (Doris Francis).
The literal heart of this necklace is darkened silver tone metal sacred heart milagro ex voto (this one with flames, you see them also with daggers and crowns). The necklace is made of rosary wrapped beads - red coral, Ethiopian silver, carved bone skull beads, freshwater pearl. All chosen to be respectful of the milagro heritage - life, death, belief, love. A milagro cherub and cross charm on a chain are threaded through the freshwater pearl's bottom link and dangle across the face of the heart.
The necklace length is around 17 inches (43cm) - a black iron wire hook links to the bale of the heart to close at the front.
