Saint Barbara Jewelry and Collectables
Barbara (mid to late third century) was a beautiful maiden with an overly jealous father who made her stay in tower so none would see her beauty. She was taught the Faith and when her father learned of it, he beheaded her. A clap of thunder was then heard and her father was reduced to ashes.
