This bracelet summarizes the life of Mary. Each bead represents a moment in her journey: an angel appeared to joachim and anna (brown bead and pink pearl bead), an elderly couple, to announce the birth of a child (golden bead). They called their daughter Mary, which means “beloved by God” (pink bead). At the age of 14, Mary was given in marriage to Joseph, a carpenter from Nazareth (wooden bead). Again, an angel (angel pendant) announced that she would give birth to the son of God, Jesus (white pearl bead). They fled to Egypt (grey hematite bead) to escape Herod’s evil order. We find Mary at the wedding at Cana, where Jesus performed his first miracle on behalf of the bride and groom, turning water into wine (white and red crystal beads). Little is known about Mary, but what is certain is that she led a poor, laborious, loving and devout life (four colored crystal beads). On a day of hatred, envy and betrayal (three black beads), she watched as her son was crucified on the cross (cross pendant). After Jesus’ ascension, Mary gathered in prayer with the disciples (twelve light blue beads) as they awaited the coming of the holy spirit. Like Jesus, she too rose and was assumed into heaven (medallion). Mary has left us strong and clear messages, as significant and important as the places she has appeared: Lourdes, Fatima, Medjugorje (three medallions).
