This is a handmade medal of St. Joan of Arc. I design and carve the medals and then cast them myself. The medals are made of lead-free pewter and have designs on both sides. The pendant comes with a jump ring (see photo 1), so it can easily be attached to any chain you have. This listing is for the pendant alone, but it does come with a split ring so it can also be used on a key chain (see photo of packaging). Each medal comes in a felt jewelry pouch with a history card that states:

Born into a peasant family, Joan (1412-31) as a young girl heard the voices of saints, telling her to save France by driving out the English. Mocked and shunned, she followed her vision, eventually leading French troops to victory. Her success soon turned to ruin: she was captured, sold to the English, imprisoned and interrogated by over a hundred men (bishops, lawyers...), all determined to break her. Joan would not betray her vision, was convicted of heresy, and was burned at the stake. 450 years after her death, the church that had persecuted her recanted and made Joan a saint. This medal was handcarved by Hank Schlau and cast in lead-free pewter. One of Joan’s best-known statements is carved on the back: “I am not afraid.”

Dimensions: 1.5 inches high x 1 inch wide x .25 inches deep; NOTE THAT THIS IS A HEAVY, LARGE MEDAL (weighs 0.85 ounces)
