PhotoHunt: Jewelry

Last month I did a post about the Madonna Nikopeia and her missing jewelry which would have been perfect for this theme too.

Wasn't sure I had more Venice-related jewelry photos but I found a couple (I guess that rosaries are jewelry, of sorts. Sacred jewelry?)


Love the colors of these rosaries - they remind me of Mardi Gras beads.

And here is Santa Lucia (St. Lucy) with rosary beads in her hand. This is inside the church of Santi Geremia e Lucia in Cannaregio.

Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.

Interesting -- I've never seen "donations" of rosary beads on Madonna statues before. Is it a particularly Venetian/Italian thing, I wonder?

I love the colourful beads and I was thinking the same thing. They look a lot like mardi gras beads :)

Hi Annie, great take on the theme. I love the colors of the rosaries. Beautiful photos.

Have a wonderful weekend.

You are so good at finding Venice shots for the photohunt. Thanks for your comment. I'll miss the hunt but time is the issue for me too. Maybe later I'll get inspired.

Nice picture you take. Look the eyes on second MaDonna.
Coffee is on
