Regular price $20.95 $0.00
Shipping calculated at checkout.
I design, carve, and cast the medals 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:

The name Raphael means “God heals,” and many texts, both in the Bible and elsewhere (see Tob. 3:16-17; also 1 Enoch 10:7), describe Raphael healing people. The archangel is also God’s messenger, who hears the prayers of the people and brings them before God (Tob. 12:12, 15). Because of his record of healing, he is often called on for both physical and spiritual healing, and he is thus also the patron of physicians and nurses. In the small pendant, handmade by Hank Schlau, Raphael holds a scroll, a symbol of the message of healing. The back, echoing his role as messenger to God, states: “St. Raphael, Pray for Us.”

Dimensions: 1.25 in high x .5 in wide
