This particular SSIR was made using beautiful light sapphire, ab clear and white pearl Czech glass beads. The photo center features Our Lady, Undoer/Untier of Knots who has recently become a popular mainstream image thanks mainly to Pope Francis. He considers it one of his favorite depictions of Mary. The original painting was created by Johann Melchior Georg Schmittdner around 1700 and hangs in the Church of St. Peter am Perlach in Augsburg, Germany. Mary is shown undoing or untying knots in a ribbon. The knots can be representative of all kinds of things from sin, world and community instability, marriage, medical, or job problems, or any personal or societal issue that seems insurmountable and beyond our reach to resolve on our own.
I recently teamed up with the National Fibromyalgia Association to create a new version of my Fibromyalgia rosary as a way to raise money and bring awareness for the millions of people who live with fibromyalgia. Many people in our country suffer with this incurable illness that is characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, depression and cognitive dysfunction, among many other symptoms. 50% of the profit from this rosary will go to the National Fibromyalgia Association, whose mission is to develop and execute programs dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with fibromyalgia. Come by and check it out!!
I have just listed the last in a series of earrings made using my own Speziale Guardian Angel Awareness Ribbon charms. Once these earrings are gone there won’t be anymore, so now is the time to buy. 🙂
There are 2 pairs with surgical steel posts and 2 pairs with sterling silver French hooks. The hooks allow the charms to hang lower than the posts, but both options are a great way to raise awareness for these awesome causes. For now they are listed in my Etsy store, but if you want to buy them from my online store, please let me know and I can create a special listing for you.
**50% of the profit from the sale of these items will go toward research for a cure!!**
