Blessing of the Fleet

Primarily a Catholic ritual, the Blessing of the Fleet is a part of our island life. We basically have two industries; tourism and commercial fishing. So I wanted to pay tribute to the fishermen by creating this brooch titled, Blessing of the Fleet.

I have used a religious medal, vintage fish and naval button along with a section of rosary beads. The rosary beads were from when I was a little girl so I only use a little bit when a special touch is called for. It's my way of offering a blessing of my own.

    1. Thanks Rhonda. I didn't want to just make jewelry; I wanted to make pieces that are important to me.
