Místico: Milagros

Milagros or "miracles" are little metal objects representing a wide variety of things such as body parts, animals, houses. These are usually given as an offering to a saint after healing a certain ailment, buying a new home or even receiving news of a trip. Most of the time they are carried until the "miracle" happens and then given to the corresponding saint.

Normally cast in silver or tin, we love it when we find them in gold.

They are incredibly charming to wear on their own...

These wooden pieces that are covered in them are incredible.

How sweet to attach your wishes...

We all need a little miracle sometimes.
