Purchase on invoice
Create your very own pearls of life from glass! The concept is simple yet really delivers. 18 pearls in your hand and each one has its own meaning. A question in life, a thought, a prayer. Attached to a pearl bracelet the pearls can act as an emblem for the way of life. They make faith tangible and encourage us to rediscover the Christian tradition and understand it in a whole new way. They’re a catechism (a lesson in faith) for your hands, a simple aid to find one’s own spiritual path and to practice faith. The pearls help to interrupt the everyday for a moment and to return to one’s self, to others and to God.
These renowned pearls for your own arts and crafts in a set of 10!
