A handmade medal on chain of St. Brendan, patron and protector of all who sail, row, or motor over the waters. I design, carve, and cast the medals myself. The medals are made of lead-free pewter and have designs on both sides. The medal comes on either an 18-inch or 24-inch chain with a lobster clasp. Each necklace comes in a felt jewelry pouch with a history card that states:

Both the legendary and real St. Brendan (ca. 484-577) loved traveling over water. Knowledge of Brendan’s prowess as a sailor was spread by a fictional work called "The Voyage of St. Brendan," which recounts his voyage in search of Paradise. The real-life Brendan also loved the sea: traveling from his home in Ireland to Scotland, Wales, and along the Irish coast. (Brendan’s abilities as a sailor are so renowned that some speculate he was the first European to reach the New World.) This medal of Brendan was handmade by Hank Schlau and cast in lead-free pewter.
