I got this beautiful reverse-painting-on-glass necklace at Folk Arts of Poland in Santa Fe when I was there for a conference a few years ago. I wandered into the shop and just fell in love with all the beautiful polish pottery and religious icons. I bought this particular pendant because I have a thing for St. Isidor, the patron saint of farmers....and, strangely, of dead children. (I didn't know that at the time.) There was another pendant of St. Francis that was incredible, but the girl who came in the shop ahead of me snapped it up. Drat! I wish they were available online. Actually, it's probably best that they're not. Anyways, I do love this one. It turns out that the Jesus-and-Mary side is actually my favorite, though. Those colors!
