Here is a list of the hand-painted Mary medals currently available at Theres Something About Marys. Please note we have listed ALL the Marys we can offer, even though some are not versions of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We had to include everyone because, even if they are males or others Marys still, we have to admit, whoever they are...There’s Something About Marys!
All of our hand-painted medal packages included a tag card about the medal and the protection in offers. We also send a 20 inch ornamental beaded chain for easy wearing. This chain can be cut and adjusted to the shorter lengths some people prefer. We also put your Mary medallion in a felt drawstring pouch, to keep her safe and sound while in transit. Don’t be surprised if you also receive a little “lagniappe” with your order. Lagniappe is a French term that means “a little something extra.”
