Prayer to Saint Anthony the Wonder-Worker
Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find {mention your petition} which has been lost. As least restore to me peace and tranquility of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God.Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.

I was able to find a very unique vintage acrylic cameo of St. Anthony with Child Jesus. I adorned it with tiny pearls set in a brass setting.

Other Catholic medals I used are: Sacred Heart of Jesus, Virgin Mary, St. Jude and Our Lady of Lourdes. I handcrafted angels using turquoise color howlite, aqua Czech. glass beads and glass lampwork flowers.
