Brother Wolf St. Michael Cross
In Stock | STYLE: 001-600-02648
Saint Michael, the great archangel personifies valour, protection and care. His name means “Who is like unto God?” and he appears as the heavenly leader in the fight against all enemies of God. The Jews regard Michael, the prince, as the special protector of Israel, and in Christianity he serves as the protector of the Church.
While Saint Michael, the archangel protects us, he also assists in dying, accompanying us to private judgement after we depart this world, ultimately ushering us to the gates of Heaven as a patron of the holy souls. His protection over holy souls results in the dedication of cemetery chapels in his name worldwide. In ancient times he was venerated as healer before honored as an angelic warrior. He also served as patron of mariners in Normandy where the famous Mont-Saint Michel stands.

Brother Wolf Religious Jewelry
There is a famous story of St. Francis and a wolf, in which the animal terrorizes the town of Gubbio. When St. Francis finds the wolf, he pleads with him to stop the violence by calling him, “Brother Wolf.”
This story is where Brother Wolf jewelry got its name. “The line originally was inspired by St. Francis and his love for animals,” says Tesauro. Brother Wolf leads the pack in offering religious-themed medallions, each designed and handcrafted to provide customers a meaningful relationship with their jewelry. Family-owned and run, Brother Wolf relies on the virtue and symbolism behind each piece it creates.
Jonathan Tesauro of the Brother Wolf family gave some insight into the inner workings of the company. “We believe in fashion with meaning and that style is a virtue. Those are the two very important aspects to Brother Wolf.”
Brother Wolf takes a truly unique approach to jewelry design. Tesauro says, “Our designer travels the world and finds inspiration from different places. Relics found in remote shops far off the beaten path will inspire a design that will then be in the line.”
When asked about the process of making the pieces, he says, “Once we have a design, we do extensive research on the saint or mystic that we’re featuring. We want to know as much as possible so that we can write the story and share it with our customers. Each handmade piece comes with a card that explains the history and meaning.”
Brother Wolf takes a unique approach to giving back as well. Each piece is associated with a different virtue and social cause. “We choose charities based on the piece that will work with us and support our mission,” says Tesauro. “For example, the Sacred Heart piece represents love and supports Mercy Corp. Our Lady of Lourdes represents hope and supports the American Heart Association.” A full list of the pieces and their charities can be found on the Brother Wolf website.
