Sister Saint: Chiara “Luce” Bandano
This lovely 18k gold Catholic necklace was inspired by the brief and beautiful life of Italian Gen X-er Blessed Chiara Bandano.
Blessed Chiara was 18 when she died of cancer in 1990. Her life was quiet and average in all things except her love for God and her openness to serving Him in her suffering. When she would lose a lock of hair she was known to say “For you Jesus.”
May we all pray for the strength to say those words with our lives as well. This necklace will be a small reminder to do that.
The chain and charm have a durable 18k gold plating that will retain it’s brilliance for years to come. The chain is 18inch long and the charm is 16mm in diameter. It’s size makes it the perfect petite accompaniment to any outfit, as well as a versatile and thoughtful gift.
Each necklace comes beautifully packaged on a card with the quote from Bl. Chiara and a little bit of her story in a kraft box perfect for gift giving.
Each piece is handmade in our studio in Oklahoma. 5% of proceeds go directly to Mary’s Meals USA.
