St Francis & St Anthony Medal Clip, Greenstone & Celtic Cross
A clip showing St Francis of Assisi and St Anthony of Padua - perfect for your purse, backpack, rear view mirror or tent pole! A great way to keep these inspirational saints handy in a busy life.
Among the Franciscans themselves and in the liturgy of his feast, St Anthony is celebrated as a teacher and preacher extraordinaire. He was the first teacher in the Franciscan Order, given the special approval and blessing of St Francis to instruct his brother Franciscans. These two great saints are linked in the hearts of the faithful and in spirit.
I've made a connector for the medal from a 10mm round nephrite jade (greenstone) bead and tiny silver pewter beads together-wrapped together. A sturdy spring-action steel clasp holds the greenstone link, which in turn holds the double-sided medal and a tiny Celtic style cross.
Length: 9.5cm / 3.75 inches
Bead: 10mm round nephrite jade
Clasp: 3cm / 1.2 inches
This clip is a meaningful gift for a traveler as it takes up little room when you are on the move. It comes on a presentation card as shown in the last photo and will be attractively wrapped ready for gifting.
