30.00

These handmade earrings, by Brooklyn based artist Daisy Tainton, are crafted from Mexican brass Sacred Heart of our Lady of Sorrow milagros augmented by french jet beads.

Milagros--Spanish for miracle--are religious folk charms that are used to request or commemorate a saints assistance. They are common in Mexico and throughout the Mexican diaspora. The image might be used to specify a literal medical issue--for example, a heart attack--or symbolically, as in romantic troubles.

Gold vermeil (sterling with gold plating) hooks and wires.

1.5x0.7x0.3 in.

Note: Because each set is handmade, there are slight variations between individual pieces.
