Now that we know more about Native American fetishes, let’s take a look at these Latin American religious charms!
Historically, Milagros accompanied the Spanish to Latin America. Milagros, translating to “miracles”, are a Latin American religious folk tradition that are offered as a tool for healing. Today, you will find them in churches and other religious locations as well as affixed to various objects. The meaning of each unique Milagro is open to interpretation: for example, a heart-shaped Milagro may symbolize romance and love or a healthy heart.
The Milagro charms that we carry at Happy Mango Beads were handcrafted in Jalisco, Mexico. These ‘good luck charms’ are made of a metal alloy mixture and this particular metal is a very white silver. Very beautiful!
