My Saint My Hero Wearable Blessings
My Saint My Hero jewelry was created around the idea of wearable blessings- reminders of the light within us and our power to do good in the world. Throughout their journey together, My Saint My Hero founders Amy D’Ambra and Christine Rich have been drawn to the small pilgrimage town of Medjugorje in Bosnia and Herzegovina. On a visit there in 2010, Amy watched as local women hand wove bracelets with love, praying with every knot. Wanting to share a bit of the sacred place, she brought a few bracelets home to Los Angeles. Those pieces now form the heart of the growing My Saint My Hero jewelry line.
These bracelets that form the core of the My Saint My Hero line of jewelry is a macrame bracelet featuring the Benedictine Medal. This medal is a symbol of blessing and of protection. The Benedictine Cross is one of the Church’s most powerful symbols of divine protection. It was created in the mid 600’s as a symbol of the spiritual truths that enabled St. Benedict and his many followers to resist evil and do good.
My Saint My Hero’s Mission
From My Saint My Hero:
[the company] was founded on the belief that
God is real, prayer works and love heals. Our pieces are
wearable blessings that remind us we are loved.
We want My Saint My Hero to be more than a
Company, but a community, inspired by God to help transform
lives and make the world a better place. Crafted in love and
prayer, our wearable blessings empower women through
My Saint My Hero believes that living our life with light and remembering that we are blessed will spread goodness throughout the world. They have themselves embodied this mission with their partnership with the women of Medjugorje. They have empowered the women of Medjugorje through meaningful work – providing them with a support system and income to better themselves with the dignity of their beautiful trade. The work they provide allows them to rise above poverty level to put food on the table, shoes on their children’s feet and even have the opportunity to send their children to University.
As each bracelet is made with prayers and good intentions, My Saint My Hero hopes that each wearer of these bracelets is reminded that they are blessed with the same abilities. By wearing the bracelet by your hands, it is a reminder to continue to use your hands and your strength to do good in the world.
Available Bracelet Styles
The original blessing bracelet is available in both gold and silver-toned medals and on a variety of colored cords. In addition to the benedictine medal, variations with the cross, miraculous medal, and garment of grace are also available. One of our favorites is the new Divine Blessings bracelet, which features a single Benedictine medal surrounded by pearls.
