Miniature Religious Relics

One reason NOT to act saintly?? They will cut you up into little pieces and divvy you up to hundreds of people.. heeheh

A few new reliquaries.. I love making these.. maybe because of all the jewels...
You can see more photos of them here:

Creepy saint hand..

  5. Very scary but very cool!
    This reminded me ... I studied at a school near a church. The first time I visited the 'room of the miracles' on the second floor of the church, I was so impressed with the relics stored there... So after this, I spent a month sleeping with the lights on!

  7. This is true artistry - as a lover of all things kitsch + macabre I am in awe! Please keep making them they're so cute in a deliciously creepy way! Don't suppose any are for sale? X
