A hand-carved medal of St. Sebastian as the patron saint/protector of football players. 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:

"Because Sebastian, an officer in the Roman guards, practiced his Christianity openly, he was charged with worshiping a non-Roman God. He was tied to a tree, shot with arrows, and left for dead. But he recovered and went on practicing his faith. He became the patron of athletes because of his physical endurance (surviving the attempted martyrdom), determination, and spirit. This medal was designed, carved, and cast in pewter at In the Co. of Saints in Covington, Louisiana. The front depicts an offensive and defensive player in action while an angelic Sebastian looks down from above and protects and guides them. The back has a tiny image of the saint surrounded by his name."
