Connor Francis ~ Confirmation

Connor Francis has a special place in my heart!  He chose the Aves and the crucifix and wanted me to surprise him with the rest.  The Aves are 6mm Czech pressed glass in a matte finish.  Each bead is spaced with 3 spacers giving tribute to the Holy Trinity.  The Paters are silver plated pewter beads with an engraved cross on either side.  Surrounding the Paters are 7 beads for the 7 sacraments with the 4th bead being black to represent Confirmation, the 4th sacrament Connor has received. The wonderfully detailed large crucifix features all 14 stations of the cross in detailed images on the back of the crucifix. The front of the crucifix features 4 images as well as the corpus of Christ over a beautifully inlaid black wooden cross. The four images featured on the front of the crucifix are: an Eagle, a Bull, a Lion and an Angel holding the Bible symbolizing the four evangelists: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. This piece was made in Italy, is silver oxidized finished to perfection as only the Italians can do, and measures approximately 2.5 inches in length. With the crucifix hangs a St. Francis/St. Anthony medal, 2 saints that have touched Connor’s life in amazing ways!  Congratulations, Connor Joseph Francis!! We are so very proud of you!
