Vintage! Religious medals

Some of my most treasured vintage finds have been Catholic medals, icons and rosaries. The older ones have the most gorgeous detail, and, again, I have to wonder where they have been and who took comfort from them along the years.

These are a few of the pieces I've made using these lovely relics.


  1. Oh my gosh, I'm drooling! LOVE all things vintage and Catholic! Just lovely! I'm off to go read about them in more detail in your Etsy shop...:)

  2. Excellent pieces. I hated Catholic school but always loved all of the medals and statues. I had a glass glow-in-the-dark rosary, but I ended up selling it on eBay.

  3. Great finds! I always wonder what great stories vintage objects hold behind them! ;)
