Beautiful Holy Family Braceletby Ellen DuBois on 09/02/20
This beautiful Holy Family bracelet is made with light blue, frosted agate and pewter spacer beads. There is a charm with Mary, Jesus and Joseph on it with a cross on the back. I also used an angel wing charm in the shape of a heart. This bracelet symbolizes the love of God and of family. It can mean many things to different people. This is from Wikipedia: "The Holy Family consists of the Child Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and Saint Joseph. Veneration of the Holy Family was formally begun in the 17th century by Saint François de Laval, the first bishop of New France, who founded a Confraternity." The angel wing charm reminds whoever is wearing this that the angels are always near and ready to assist. All you have to do is ask! "Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do…but how much love we put in that action."- Mother Teresa
I plan on making these in a wide variety of beads for those who something different. This is the first one I made and I love the light blue, but the possibilities are endless! (As long as I have a color/bead in stock.) I feel good making these and I hope those who wear one feel the love of the Holy Family.
