Florentine Lion ~ Sacred Heart Pictorial Amulet

A sweet faced Lion holding a Fleur de Lis banner or pennant is the focal point of this one of a kind pendant.

Found image under a large, glowing vintage crystal glass heart cabochon. Set within a hand painted Italian rust red based gold & iron finish ~ sacred heart clay frame with stylized flames or crown.

Pendant is @ 1 1/2 inches wide, @ 2 inches long.

Necklace is made up of chalk turquoise, amazonite chip & antiqued filigree beads measuring @ 19 1/2 to 22 inches long with a chain extender.  (length can be adjusted upon request when purchased, beadwork may be additional)
Parrish Relics are one of a kind and handmade in my one-woman (& two helpful cats) jewelry studio at Frog Hollow. Time and care is spent collecting tiny images that I find inspiring and captivating ~
Clay frames are formed around glass to pay tribute to the beautiful artwork they celebrate! Alchemically hand painted to match the metal components in the chains and findings, they become unique adornments that start conversations and are joyful to wear.
All orders are sent beautifully gift packaged in stamped recycled pillow boxes or organza bags, along with a care sheet and my favorite mossy tissue paper.
