Wearing Mary on your sleeve...

Just a gentle reminder that Holy Mary is w you via your cuff links! Enjoy! 

This image of Mary is very sweet and child-like. I thought the image was very settle and would make a passerby do a double take not initially knowing the image was our Blessed Mother. In my mind that is a settle way for men to begin Catholic evangelizing. This is another one of AG specially designed cuff links. I really enjoy creating them... Enjoy!

When she realized the words composed the Hail Mary she squealed w delight 'cracking' the code. Enjoy!

confirmation rosary - St. Joan pray for us

Confirmation traditional full rosary w St. Joan Images - Enjoy!!

Here are six different images of St. Joan serving God with words on the back side commemorating the sacrament.
