Announcement    Thank you for supporting my small business and passion for beautiful religious pieces. More antique replicas of rare, collectible medals are coming soon! There is so much beauty and art in these antique replicas that is missing from today's artificial perfection of mass-produced pieces.

The artisan jewelry and rosaries are unique to Holy Moments®. Many pieces feature gorgeous antique replica medals. Religious antique replicas are not just replicas of old medals, crosses and crucifixes. These fine replicas are physical symbols of decades of trust, faith, and hope. I feel blessed to offer them to a renewed generation of faithful believers who will keep the blessings and faith alive. Many special pieces have disappeared into private collections, but these are found and duplicated using the lost wax method and an antiquing process that oftentimes makes them more beautiful than the originals. Antique replica medals do differ from today's technology mass-produced pieces in that they are not as crisp or perfect. Antique replicas may have a bit of wear, but are often more detailed or hand crafted in appearance.

You can also find Holy Moments® at www.HolyMoments.com and at conferences/shows near Saint Louis. Please also visit my brand new 2021 HolyMomentsCrosses Etsy shop. You are never fully dressed without a cross! www.etsy.com/shop/HolyMomentsCrosses

A note about hallmarks or content marks on these medals...in general, stamps such as "925" are really "on your honor". Anyone can stamp 925 on their product. The best way to confirm metal content is to test the metal. All of these medals are identical replicas of the antique original which means that they have the same marks/stamps as the original. However, the antique original has been cast in sterling silver, bronze and gold bronze versions. A sterling silver medal may not have a "925" or "sterling" stamp, but is still solid .925 sterling silver. Likewise, a bronze medal may have a 10K stamp because the original antique was gold!

I love making something special for you! If you would prefer a different chain, gemstone, or anything custom, please ask. Holy Moments® is a love as well as a business so I do not charge any kind of custom fee.

Holy Moments to you!

Holy Moments to you!

Thank you for visiting the Holy Moments® Etsy Shop! This has been my personal shopping account on Etsy for years. Due to COVID-19 cancellations, I decided to open an Etsy shop and display a selection of products from my established Holy Moments on-line and show company.

The artisan jewelry and rosaries are unique to Holy Moments®. Many pieces feature gorgeous antique replicas. Religious antique replicas are not just replicas of old medals, crosses and crucifixes. These fine replicas are physical symbols of decades of trust, faith and hope. I feel blessed to offer them to a renewed generation of faithful believers who will keep the blessings and faith alive. Many special pieces have disappeared into private collections, but these are found and duplicated using the lost wax method and an antiquing process that oftentimes makes them more beautiful than the originals!

I am a married mother of two teenagers. For many years, I did not attend church or pray, but instead focused on the world's definition of success. A crisis pregnancy drew me back to God. A few years later, a retreat brought "Godwinks" and holy moments to life for me. I participated on or led various retreat teams and love the holy energy of retreats.

Prompted by God during a retreat, I founded and ran a non-profit service organization for 6 years as a volunteer. I created opportunities for parents to work side by side with their children helping those less fortunate. I stepped out of that role when my dear mother was diagnosed and dying from liver cancer.

After my mother passed, I felt a calling to a new mission--to help people live more beautiful, holy moments, in their everyday lives while financially supporting non-profits. I want to bring the holy energy of a retreat to the everyday.

A portion of profits are donated to the Cancer Research Institute in New York, a leader in immunotherapy research.

You are never fully dressed without a cross! Show the world who you are and whose you are.

Holy Moments to you!
