All Virgins, Saints, and Angels pieces are handmade in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico by a team of thirty-two traditional craftsmen. The collective, also referred to as V.S.A. for short, was started in 2000 by Cheryl Finnegan (Finn), after a fourteen year marketing career with Levi Strauss & CO, in an effort to bring together an artistic community where individuals would be free to explore their imagination and spirituality. San Miguel is a bustling melting pot of creative endeavors, traditional culture and folk-lore. This is the perfect birthplace for pieces of handmade divinity to be made.
Just take a look at some of the unique examples of jewelry that Virgins, Saints, and Angels have to offer: The San Benito Magdalena Medallion Necklace. A gold dipped sterling silver rosary with black diamond Schwarzkopf crystals. The rosary features seven large black crystals, while the Vatican medallion displays four smaller crystals. It is simply beautiful. The Hamsa Hand Charm Necklace. This piece features intricate silversmith craftsmanship. The charm protects the wearer against evil and temptation through the crystal “all-seeing eye” displayed at the center of the charm. Six smaller crystals complete the design. The Charmed Magdalena Four Virgins Necklace. Beautiful, Gothic design in sterling silver and natural pearls. The large silver medallion displaying the four Virgins design features nine clear Schwarzkopf crystals, while the long pearl rosary also displays seven over-sized clear crystals. This is a truly magnificent and enchanting piece.
Virgins Saints and Angels draw their inspiration from Catholicism, as well as iconic females such as Eve, Mary Magdalene, and Aphrodite. The artisans of Virgins Saints and Angels seek to intertwine beauty, creativity, and the celestial. They employ the use of precious metals and stones, Schwarzkopf crystals, and religious artifacts sourced directly from the Vatican. These charms carry with them power, protection, and beauty. They guard against temptation and evil, and serve to relieve the aching soul. More than just jewelry, Virgins, Saints, and Angels make magic.
