“Maria Elena Headpieces is more than a jewel, a work of art”
Hand cast filigree castings are composed using jeweler’s techniques to form a beautiful and unique filigree bouquet or lazo rosary design which can then be plated in your choice of Antique Silver, Antique Gold, Rose Gold or Rustic Havana (a cross between brass, rose gold and antique gold) or Tuscan Jade (green patina). Swarovski crystals and semi-precious elements (dependent on design) are individually hand set saturating this design with embellishment. For extra attention to detail the cross also be set with a certain amount of elements on the back.
Bespoke design is available on items – plating, crystal and stone embellishment are able to be customised to your specific colourways, please contact us to discuss your bespoke designs. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Crosses and rosary beads may be interchanged between all designs.
NOTE : What is a lazo rosary? A lazo rosary is made by linking two rosaries together, joined in the center by one crucifix. Traditionally a Spanish, Mexican or Phillipino wedding tradition. A lazo rosary, also called el lazo, is an oversized rosary, large enough to be entwined (lassoed) around the couple. After the couple has exchanged their vows, their wedding sponsors (witnesses) called el padrino and la madrina, place the rosary around the couple’s shoulders, starting with groom’s shoulder and then the bride’s shoulder, to form a figure eight shape. The priest recites a prayer, similar to the following: “Let the union of binding together this rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary be an inspiration to you both. Remember the holiness necessary to preserve your new family can only be obtained by mutual sacrifice and love.” The couple wears the lasso throughout the remainder of the service. At the end of the ceremony the lasso is removed by the priest or by the wedding sponsors who placed the lasso around the couple.
