About the Retablos Bracelet

Retablos are small iconographic devotional artworks, usually associated with Latin Catholic folk art. The bracelet features five miniature retablos of Christian icons, permanently captured in pewter and linked together to form a spiritual work of wearable art. The retablo images are as follows:

- Nuestra Señora del Rosario (Our Lady of the Rosary / Blessed Virgin Mary)
- San Rafael (the Archangel Rafael)
- La Trinidad (the Trinity)
- Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe (Our Lady of Guadalupe / Icon of the Virgin Mary), whose image is repeated twice in the bracelet

All are original images by the artist, with the exception of Our Lady of Guadalupe, whose likeness is adapted from a 19th century folk sculpture found in a northern New Mexico church. The bracelet segments are cast in pewter, followed by sanding, polishing and buffing, all accomplished by hand. Measures 7.5". Designed and handcrafted in New Mexico.

- What is pewter? Pewter is a white metal alloy consisting of tin with small amounts of antimony and copper. Frequently used for kitchenware and jewelry, pewter is completely lead-free, lighter in weight than silver, and doesn't tarnish. If needed, pewter is easily cleaned with fine steel wool.
