St. Christopher Pendant

Touchstone Pottery
  • Patron of travelers
  • St. Christopher was a powerful man who had the job of carrying travelers across a river. When a small child asked to be carried, Christopher lifted him onto his shoulders. With each step the child became heavier until Christopher thought he might drop the child, but he struggled to the other side. It was then revealed that the child Christopher carried was the Christ Child carrying the weight of the sins of the world.

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.
