Trésor Bleu Exclusive - Antique (more than 100 years old) France, c.1917 (World War I)

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 originally created these artifacts by hand, by 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.  Once this trend caught on, other shapes and items were made from the plentiful copper casings, and gifted to French soldiers to take with them into battle.

This unique piece rotates to reveal an image of Mary.  It is 2.3 inches in height, .6 inches wide.  It was made to be a travel piece, "in the trenches" of war or other life struggles.

This "Baller de Prière" makes a perfect travel piece, or journey-through-life piece. All trésors are custom wrapped for gifting and shipping is free within the U.S.
