This beautiful hand emerging from sleeve with raised heart is a reproduction in yellow bronze of a vintage Peruvian milagro. It comes with its own jump ring and measures app. 1 1/2" high by 1/2" wide.
Artisans from Latin America and Mexico have made milagros as portable icons, amulets that one can carry or wear for protection from harmful forces, in thanksgiving for blessings received, and as reminders of the transformations of faith.
This wonderfully detailed hand would be perfect for adding to a handmade necklace, for incorporating into a shrine, or for giving as a small, thoughtful gift of friendship and love.
