My grandmother's sister Victoria, who like my grandmother, has had an altar in her home FOREVER. She is quite the personality. A vibrant older Sicilian lady who is 4 feet something tall, she still works at a job, and is well into her 80's. She says her rosaries daily, reads tarot cards, never married, smokes cigarettes and is known for her JUNK JEWELRY. She has tons of it! I would classify her as a gypsy soul. She is also my Godmother.
She has been sending me some of her junk jewelry. Not really sure what to do with it all, I decided to make a cross out of one of the necklaces and pin.
Working with the mother of pearl amber beads and a clover pin that is accented with mother of pearl and small rhinestones, I created this cross that sits atop a amber bottle.
