I've been somber these past few weeks now that the tenth anniversary of 9/11 and the attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon approaches. I remember the tragedy as if it were yesterday. That day will continue to haunt me until the day I die. May God Bless all those who died needlessly on that unforgiveable day. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

Newly listed to Metal Corset are these assemblage earrings featuring many rare antique religious relics/artifacts. Part of my relics series, these earrings coordinate with the relics bracelet.
From each earring hangs a beautiful antique reliquary.
One has a antique French brass Notre Dame De Lourdes reliquary, and the other an antique sterling silver Miraculous Mary reliquary featuring an antique image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus under glass.
Each earring also features an antique Flaming Sacred Heart ex voto and an antique Miraculous Mary medal.
All these beautiful relics hang from an antique Art Deco paste connector.

The antique French Flaming Sacred Heart Ex Voto reliquary was used to house devotional messages inside and placed on a Saint in a place of worship and is very rare.
Newly listed to Metal CorsetII is this exquisite and rare paste drop cross pendant/brooch.
This ornately designed Georgian cross features several European hand cut foil backed paste stones set in sterling silver. The drop articulates from the center highlighting a large pear shaped paste stone.
The pinback is a later Victorian addition allowing it to be worn as either a pendant or brooch.
It is in almost perfect condition which is very rare for a piece more than 200 years old. What a find!
