Flaming Sacred Heart Ex Voto Vessel and Art Deco Sterling Silver Marcasite Locket Assemblage Necklace


My newest assemblage jewelry piece and quite a lot of fun to make. I found a stunning Art Deco sterling silver and marcasite watch pendant and used it to embellish a pewter flaming sacred heart ex voto vessel. The Christ Child assemblage inside was created from an antique lace holy card. The flame top of the vessel unscrews so a message of devotion can be placed inside. Three foil backed paste chatons are placed inside the locket to give movement. It hangs from a 15" silver plated rolo chain.

Art Deco Sterling Silver Saint Esprit Dove

This is one beautiful piece. It's an Art Deco sterling silver paste brooch measuring 2 3/8" x 2". Such a stunning bird with amazing detail. I have already created in my mind's eye an assemblage I will be using it in. Keep a weathered eye on Metal Corset for its debut.

My newest religious piece completed yesterday. This flaming sacred heart ex voto locket has been adorned with a large antique rhinestone crown. Inside the locket is an assemblage of Mary and the babe Jesus from an antique lace holy card. The babe Jesus wears a rare antique rhinestone crown. The front door of this locket is carved with, "A and M," for Ave Maria. This hangs from an antique sterling silver filigree bead necklace.
