EX VOTO Flaming Heart/ Sacred Heart - SYMBOL OF ETERNAL LOVE
- The flaming heart of Jesus Milagros is an ambiguous symbol. Purely religious on the surface, it openly indicates faith in the Catholic church. But in fact it is one of many images that straddle the line between luck, protection and religion and which use the iconography of actual deities as lucky charms.
- Milagros means " Miracle" Love is a miracle and a blessing.
- Furthermore, because of the association of the heart with love spells and love charms, it can partake of romantic or even sexual connotations.
- Finally, as with all Milagros, this one may be a signification of a body part -- a broken heart to be mended or a case of cardiac failure to be healed.
The Sacred Heart is one of the most common motifs in religious folk art created in Mexico. The idea is that the physical heart of Jesus is a symbol of his divine love for humanity.
Storing Bronze Jewelry
Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin, and jewelry made of it will tarnish with time. The tarnish is a greenish layer of copper oxide formed when bronze comes into contact with oxygen and is called patina.
When taking off your bronze jewelry after wearing it, wipe the pieces clean with a soft cloth before storing them. This should be done to remove any traces of oils from your skin as they may speed up the tarnishing of bronze.
I do seal all bronze and copper pendants but sealing might wear off after a certain time and need to be re-sealed.
Since the tarnishing process is facilitated by the oxygen in the air, it is advisable to keep your bronze jewelry in a plastic bag to slow down the formation of patina. You can also put an anti-tarnish strip in the bag.
Make sure you wipe your bronze jewelry dry before storing it: Leaving it to dry in contact with the air makes it easier for patina to form.
