Pal Kepenyes Bronze Copper Silver Kinetic Milagros Miracles Charms Cuff Bracelet

$1,250

About

Handmade sculpture to wear, bronze cuff bracelet created by Pal Kepenyes of Acapulco, Mexico. Bracelet is comprised of a heavily textured surface of milagros or "miracles", some of which dangle off the body of the bracelet. Cuff is large in scale measuring 3.25" wide with wearable wrist length of 8". Unsigned and unmistakably Kepenyes. Suitable for a man or woman and in very good vintage condition. Taken from the Zinnia Folk Arts blog with thanks: "Milagros are small metal religious charms. The word milagro means “miracle”. In the not too distant past, these small charms, often depicting arms, legs, praying people, farm animals and a wide range of other subjects were typically nailed or pinned to crosses or wooden statues of various saints like the Virgin Mary or Christ, sacred objects, pinned on the clothing of saint statues, or hung with little red ribbons or threads from altars and shrines. They are also carried for protection and good luck."
