Prayer to Saint Anne
Glorious Saint Anne, filled with compassion for those who invoke thee, and with love for those who suffer, heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at thy feet and humbly beg of thee to take the present affair which I recommend to thee under thy special protection. Vouchsafe to recommend it to thy Daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and lay it before the throne of Jesus, so that He may bring it to a happy issue. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day beholding my God face to face, and with Thee and Mary and all the Saints, praising and blessing Him to all eternity. Amen
I think it would of been an honor to have been St. Ann, mother of Our Blessed Mother and Grandmother of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, what a Blessing to have been able to share their childhood as a mother and grandmother.
I created this bracelet to give her that honor as mother and grandmother using a beautiful porcelain cameo with her image and child Virgin Mary. I also used a St. Ann's 3rd class relic and other Catholic medals including Our Lady of Medjugorje, Miraculous Medal, Holy Family and others. I added some beautiful teal glass lampwork beads and pumpkin color glass pearls to enhance the colors of the cameo.
