Tile image pendant..Santo Cristo

Much of the inspiration for my vintage 'jewels' comes from my home.. the Azores Islands. It can be the way the moss clings and overcomes the stones,  the old tiles and architecture or lush overgrown gardens and forests.

This pendant is a photo image detail  I took of the tiled wall mural in the Sanctuary of Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres, Ponta Delgada.

Portuguese tiles are known worldwide for their beauty and 'storytelling'..http://www.golisbon.com/culture/azulejos.html
