Saints bracelets

Someone contacted me about these Saints bracelets, wondering if I might be able to track down a manufacturer or vendor.



I rock at research, but so far the information eludes me.
The woman thought they might come out of Mexico City.
These seem to be of higher quality than the ones out of Brazil, but I could be mistaken.
They are possibly made from a lucite material.
Any clues?

I have one like the centre one, but mine has Buddahs on it. It is the kind of thing I would like to make. I work in resin.

This lady sells beautiful bracelets on eBay. I bought one for my sister and it was a very pleasant experience. Different from yours, but the same theme. Check it out. Perhaps this would be a good substitute?

You might want to search for the term "milagros"- it means miracles, but when I was in Mexico, the term is also used for little saint medallions. I picked up a bracelet in Cancun with the Virgin on it. Love it!--Jenny at CraftTestDummies.com

Hey! Did a little more research on these, and Kathy Cano-Murillo on www.CraftyChica.com sells a few versions of these.... one with Freida Kalo, some with Mexican Novela (soap opera) stars, Loteria images, and Our Lady of Guadalupe. I have some links on my Cinco De Mayo post, too, for more....-Jenny at CraftTestDummies.com

This is a friend of a friend's site. Might have something similar.

I keep passing up vintage Mass cards at garage sales, I'm thinking I start collecting them too
