Our Lady of Guadelupe Oval Handmade Porcelain Pendant
Patron of America's.
In 1531, Juan Diego was hurrying to mass in Mexico City when the Blessed Virgin calling herself Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to him. She instructed him to built a temple where she stood. The Bishop, not believing Juan, told him that he needed a sign. The Blessed Virgin instructed Juan to gather roses and take them to Bishop. Juan did, upon opening his cloak to release the roses, the image of Our Lady appeared inside the cloak just as Juan had described her. The shrine built has been a pilgrimage sight ever since.
The unique making process of these porcelain pendants allows for more detail in designs than other mediums. These designs are fired into the clay at 1200 degrees, so they will not peel or wear off. Each piece is surprisingly lightweight.
