Godspeed, St. Christopher Saint Christopher (died c.250), an early Roman martyr and legendary saint, described as extremely tall and strong, sought vainly to serve a king worthy of his strength. Serving first a king frightened by the devil, he abandoned the king for the more powerful devil. After a short time with the devil, he observed the devil's fear of the symbolic cross and concluded Jesus' supremacy over the devil. He launched a fearless quest to find the most powerful Jesus uniquely worthy of his service. Advised by a hermit to pray or fast, as a way to seek Jesus, Saint Christopher struggled with how to pray and abstain from food. As an alternative, he volunteered to carry travelers across a tempestuous river where many drowned. One day, when resting by the river, he heard a child's voice call out "Christopher, come out and carry me across." Grabbing his staff, he lifted the child to his shoulders and began to traverse the rough river. With each step, the child weighed heavier and currents resisted his stride. In deep waves, Christopher grew afraid that he would lose his step and they would both drown. Exhausted, bewildered and breathless he requested the child's identity. Today, we honor the popular "Christ-bearer", Saint Christopher, with two Brother Wolf virtue medallions, featuring the images of Saint Christopher with staff carrying the Christ Child on his shoulders inspiring both protection and Godspeed in all of our journeys.

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.”
