We find in you the virtues that make our world a house of gold
We share with you the house of earth and join you in making it a palace of light
We offer the sunrise and the sunset to you
Help us in our beginnings and our endings
May we make the world a house of golden love. (extract from prayer by David Richo)

An assemblage of canvas, vintage lace and embellishments on a deep canvas. The vintage image of Mary is printed onto fabric, then stitched onto layers of vintage lace and edging and vintage crocheted and lace doilies. The canvas is covered with vintage sewing pattern papers, writing in French, English and Italian.
The heart is made from wood, painted red and distressed; covered with gold wire and white and gold roses. The crown floating above the sacred heart is also wooden. This piece needs to hang on a wall so that the golden beading can come into its own right.
Each one of my pendants, shrines, paintings and other sacred art are first infused with holy water from Lourdes (which I brought back), and then infused with holy relic oil of more than 53 Saints & pure essential oils. A mixture of one hundred oils are used, including frankincense, myrrh, spikenard, agarwood and rose. It is also immersed in blessed pink dead sea salts, infused with rose petals steeped in holy oil of a third relic of St Therese of Lisieux and it is packaged with blessed salts, frankincense and sprinkled with holy water collected form many sacred places in the world. So it becomes sort of holy object to be handled with reverence and care.
All my items come beautifully packaged and securely wrapped and parceled. I mail first class international shipping with a tracking number free of charge to
