St. Zelie Martin lost four infant children in her time on earth and now one can only imagine she spends much of her heaven praying fervently for mothers faced with similar heartbreak. This bracelet was created to be a lovely and simple child loss memorial necklace – a simple reminder easy to wear every day.
The beads on this bracelet are a soft petal pink, glossy smooth to the touch, and the sturdy stretchy cord insures easy daily wear. The two charms are attached with durable split rings.
Zelie Martin’s fame was originally grounded in her position as the venerable mother of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, but has grown by her own merits in the last few years as she and her husband were declared saints together by Pope Francis in 2015.
The hummingbird symbolizes a tiny life, bringing love no matter how brief its stay. A hummingbird’s wings also beat in the pattern of an infinity symbol – a reminder that though time on earth is short, heaven is forever.
Each piece comes beautifully packaged on a thoughtful card explaining the symbolism of the hummingbird and the quote from St. Zelie in a mylar sleeve.
Each piece is handmade and therefore may have slight variations.
