Virgin Mary Cameo and 7 Archangels Charm Bracelet
I created this bracelet making honor to Our Blessed Mother and 7 Archangels including St. Michael, St. Raphael, St. Gabriel, Uriel, Samuel, Zadquiel and Jophiel. I added amber to represent their radiance and natural Jasper to represent their strenght.
I also added a beautiful ornate Virgin Mary with Baby Jesus cameo and many angel wings, Vermeil-style beads as well.
"The very name of Michael urges us to honor this glorious spirit; it is a cry of enthusiasm and fidelity, for it signifies: "Who is like unto God?" Satan trembles at hearing this name, for it reminds him of the noble protest wherewith the bright Archangel answered the call of the rebel angels. Michael proved his strength and prowess when he fought the great battle in Heaven. From that hour he has been known as "Michael, the captain of the armies of God, first Prince of the Holy City, to whom the other angels yield ready obedience. They most willingly and gratefully recognize his supremacy, for after God, they owe to him their preseverance in grace and their eternal happiness. With loving submission, they receive from him their various offices. They are attentive to the slightest wish, because they recognize in his commands and regulations the will of God, their sovereign Lord and King.*
