Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Bracelet

Thou who, with special mercy, 
 look upon those clothed 
in Thy beloved Habit,  
cast a glance of pity upon me.
  Fortify my weakness with Thy strength;  
enlighten the darkness 
of my mind with Thy wisdom;  
increase my faith, 
 hope and charity.  
Assist me during life,

Whimsical St.Francis of Assisi Religious Charm Bracelet

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

This is a very whimsical bracelet honoring one of God's greatest Saints. If you love animals as much as I do, you can't help but think happy, whimsical, they bring so much beauty and joy
to our world and that is why I create whimsical bracelets honoring St. Francis and one of God's creations.

I added a beautiful St. Francis of Assisi medal surrounded by many of God's creations in a very unique way, the bird pendant was a vintage brooch converted into a charm, other animals are all glass lampwork and includes dogs, cats, owl, lizards, frogs, panda bear, fish and a chicken and I also included wedding cake beads to make this bracelet more colorful and whimsical.
