St. Andrew Pendant

Touchstone Pottery
  • Patron of Scotland, Russia, and fishermen
  • As an apostle of Jesus, St. Andrew spread his word throughout Asia Minor and Greece and was eventually crucified on a diagonally shaped (saltire) cross. Some of St. Andrew's remains were brought to Scotland for safekeeping. King Angus of Scotland prayed to St. Andrew for help during a battle. A white cloud appeared in the sky in the form of a saltire cross. When Angus won the battle, he declared St. Andrew the patron saint of Scotland.

For centuries, we have called upon our patron saints knowing that they will be our advocates and provide us strength. The exemplary lives of the saints serve as examples to us. Having a special saint to call on for each of our needs gives us hope, encouragement, and protection. Our handmade porcelain portraits help to keep your patron saint close to you.

Illustrated by South Carolina artist Monica Wyrick.

Each piece is composed of fine grained, translucent porcelain clay. The intricate designs consist of slip glazes fired into the porcelain, then each piece is finished to a satin touch and is approximately 1 3/8 by 7/8 inch. Each oval pendant has a 32-inch black rayon cord and is individually packaged in a velvet-like box with a card describing the symbolism of the design.
