This beautiful handmade piece was donated by Patricia Mackey of Tippy Stockton Jewelry. It holds a special place in Patricia’s heart, as told below~
“One of the most glorious cathedrals in the world… the Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the crown jewels of Paris. It is also the school that my mother studied at in Baltimore, MD.
I’ve been so inspired by the gorgeous castings that I have recently found. This particular casting is the Ave Maria symbol. Floating below that is a lovely locket; very unique in that when you slide the front panel of the locket over, hidden beneath it is the Lord’s Prayer. A rhinestone cross is featured on the front of the locket and the necklace is made up of vintage Rosary beads. A treasure to be sure. The necklace measures out at 30″ and is secured with a brass lobster clasp.”
