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 medal comes on either an 18-inch or 24-inch alloy chain with a lobster clasp. Each necklace comes in a felt jewelry pouch with a history card that states:

"Apprenticed as a boy to a master jeweler, Eligius (588-660) quickly showed himself to have great talent in designing and crafting jewelry. His talent came to the notice of King Clotaire II, who as a test gave Eligius a bag of gold and a bag of gems and told him to make a throne. Eligius made two spectacular thrones, and was named court goldsmith. He made many other works for churches and individuals and became wealthy, though he gave away vast amounts of his wealth to anyone who asked. Eventually, he became a monk and then bishop, but he kept on making jewelry. This medal of Eligius at work was handmade by Hank Schlau, who often humbly appeals to St. Eligius."
