Mexican Flower Milagros Heart Plastic, Laser cut earrings by Sunny Buick
I took an old tattoo flash design of mine and made into tattooed jewellery!
Milagros are mexican embossed tin hearts that are hung in the home or on an altar. They serve to ask God for a miracle, or show gratitude for one that has been granted. I especially identify with the miraculous heart, and I started to draw them obsessively in the end of 2016. They were the perfect symbol for what I had been feeling, or more precisely a denial of what I felt. Alternatively, a desire to feel something else. This art project was self-prescribed form of therapy, after what seemed like a year filled with tragedies.
Like I said, these hearts became an obsession, turning my anxiety into a positive and productive activity. Instead of fear and paranoia, I chose to manifest love and miracles. Likewise asking in the spirit of generosity for a never ending supply of ardor in my heart. Love, not to hold onto for myself, but regenerative, expanding, and contagious. That eternal yearning, searching for intimacy, the “into me see” connection with others. I was asking to have more sympathy for others, affection for others as a way to open up. If showing love is the ritual, sharing love is the offering, love becoming a virus is the reward, the magic spell.
I designed the pendants on my computer and laser cut them from 1/8″ acrylic plexiglass.
The actual pendant measures about 1.4 inches wide and 4.25 inches long including the ear clip.
