Exclusive to OSV – the I Am Catholic Keychain! This handmade keychain features two white lava beads, three beautiful wooden beads, plus a crucifix with an antique silver finish and a medal with the words “I am Catholic, in case of serious accident please call a priest.” The item is rich in symbolism and meaning, and can be used to pray a three Hail Mary chaplet. Each item is created by hand, and measures approximately 5.25” in length.
A note from the artisan: “In the summer of 2020, a car accident took the life of my friend’s brother and three other young adults. After seeing the pain and grief caused by this tragedy, I longed to help in some small way. Inspired by those four young people, I created this keychain that identifies you as a Catholic, should you ever need the services of a priest. As you drive, I pray that you stay under the protection of the angels and saints.”
About the Artisan
Before she began this journey, Emma Bobay worked as a Catholic school teacher. Sharing the faith with children in the classroom was the highlight of her day. When she and her husband were blessed with their first child, she made the decision to stay home with her full time. When Emma’s daughter began teething she started making teething toys and quickly found herself selling them to friends and family – and that is when Fearfully Made took its roots. FearfullyMadeBabes is her platform for sharing her faith in a way that is accessible to all ages. Find her on Etsy and on Instagram @fearfullymadebabes.
