Description

St. Christopher is typically depicted as a tall, middle-aged, bearded man with a staff who wades across a river carrying the Christ child on his shoulders. As the story goes, the extremely robust Christopher devoted his life to carrying people across an otherwise unfordable stream. One day a little child appeared before him and asked to be carried across. To Christopher’s surprise, as he forded the river, the child steadily increased in weight until Christopher found his tiny burden so heavy that it was almost impossible to bear. When he asked the holy babe why he weighed so much, the child replied that he carried the world’s sins upon his shoulders. As a reward for his service, Christopher’s staff was miraculously transformed into a living tree.
He is the patron saint of travellers and his feast day is 25th July.

This stunning necklace is handmade using 8mm Blue Banded Agate semi-precious beads on silver iron craft wire. The medal shows an image of St Christopher carrying Christ the child, and on the other side shows text that reads ‘Protect Us’.
Total length is 18″ and comes in a handmade lined crocheted pouch (colours may vary). Prayer card and short description of stones and saint also included.
