About the Sacred Heart Crest

Each crest is hand crafted by way of a very old and traditional metal or tin working developed in Mexico called "Hojalata". This technique requires professional Hojalateros or "tin-smiths" cut, hammer, shape, mold, and weld recycled tin into very specific 3-dimensional shapes and designs.
