There is a long standing tradition in Mexico and other areas of Latin America where small metal charms called "milagros" (miracles) are used to petition saints for guidance, help and protection. Milagros are made in many different symbolic forms, from eyes, hands and arms to angels and animals.
This handcrafted necklace features a special variety of milagros and freshwater pearls with bits of crystal on a black linen cord. Length approximately 38". Fairly traded.
