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.
