Prayer shrine

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI made this pin and put Mary in the charm, Back in the old days they would take photos of the love one for the inside and place a lock of hair ,  first communion medal , holy medals , or prayer beads. And placed On the back a prayer card or tribute. I used my parents cards from the funeral home. I took apart the left hand side and used the cardboard insert inside and placed a small bit of fiber stuffing {like used for stuffing teddy bears} and covered the board with yellow felt, I didn’t have any velvet.made a brooch to place in it.
