Our Lady of Lourdes Bracelet
For the past few days, I have been hard at work on a Lourdes-themed charm bracelet to sell when my Etsy Store opens. The bracelet features vintage chain and saint medals. I also added coordinating bead drops.
The center charm is a vintage Lourdes image. The story of Lourdes is one of favorite Marian sightings. These sighting occurred in France in 1858 to Saint Bernadette Soubirous. Bernadette describes Mary as wearing a white robe with a blue ribbon belted at her waist.
This blue, as seen in the vintage Lourdes medal, is echoed by the vintage Holy Spirit dove medal, as well as the blue beads I chose.
