St Columban, Patron / Protector of Motorcyclists, Handmade Medal
I design, carve, and cast the medals myself (they’re copyrighted). 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 Right Reverend John Oliver, an Anglican bishop and devoted motorcyclist, was once asked to suggest a patron of bikers. He chose St. Columban (543-615), an Irish monk who for thirty years traveled throughout Europe by sea, foot, cart…. Like other early Irish saints (e.g., Brendan), he loved the open road and the freedom of wandering. Columban built monasteries and helped run them, but he never, until his death, stopped rambling. This lead-free medal was handmade at In the Co. of Saints. The medal offers extra protection for motorcyclists."
Dimensions: 1 3/8 inches high x 7/8 inches diameter. The pendant is also available on a chain in a separate listing.
