We love that our trésors have years of wear, years of prayer. If only these "Ballers de Prièr" - AKA, prayer bullets - could talk. French soldiers in World War I created these artifacts by hand, by literally using empty ammunition (bullet) casings to create sacred pieces of art, due to them being so malleable and plentiful during WWI. Once crafted, they would add a saint, or Mary, and take them with them as a portable prayer tool.
All trésors are packaged for gifting and shipping is free in the U.S.
