FRENCH Antique Pocket Shrine NECKLACE and History of Saint Anthony
Anthony of Padua or Anthony of Lisbon, O.F.M., (born Fernando Martins de Bulhões; 15 August 1195 – 13 June 1231) was a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order. Though he died in Padua, Italy, he was born to a wealthy family in Lisbon, Portugal, which is where he was raised.
Noted by his contemporaries for his forceful preaching and expert knowledge of Scripture, he was declared a saint almost immediately after his death and proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in January 16, 1946.

I love French antiques….. I love making things…. I have combined my two passions to create my Artisan Jewelry business since 2008.
Yes…I LOVE what I do…..I am definitely a Francophile at heart. My passion for making things goes back as far as I can remember.
When I was a girl, I was always making something by hand. I studied Jewelry at the University of Delaware and have come full circle in my life…and oh, how Sweet it is!
I want to thank all of my wonderful customers, some who I am now blessed to call my Friends. Hope to see you soon!
