Regular price $20.95 $0.00
Shipping calculated at checkout.
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:

"In 2001, the Vatican named St. Luigi Scrosoppi (1804-84) as the patron saint of all soccer players/footballers. Born in 1804 in northern Italy to a very poor family, Fr Luigi devoted his life to working with poor young men and women, establishing many orphanages and schools that not only educated the young but also taught them other skills to use in their lives and work. In this vein, he encouraged young people to take part in sports, especially soccer, and is often depicted in art carrying a soccer ball. The connection of soccer and the church is alive today: Pope Francis, for instance, is an ardent fan. This medal was handmade of lead-free pewter at In the Co. of Saints."

Dimensions of pendant: 1 inch high (includes bail) x 5/8 wide
