I got some antique medals from Europe a few months ago and it took forever for me to do anything with them. Let’s just say I had been very busy with everything else in my life. But I do miss working with these lovely works of art. Funny thing was, as soon as my friend/client saw these, she got them! Even my prototype bracelet.
This medal is so pretty. The back side also has an icon of Our Lady of Fatima. So I had to make sure the setting was clean on both sides.
Here is the prototype bracelet. I was inspired to make this because of Ingrid’s constant gentle push. I was able to squeeze in this photo minutes before my friend got this.
I sure hope I can replicate this… Each medal is an antique. And the stones in between are green amethysts. And gold is oh so expensive!
I started producing more medals for the coming holiday season. The medals here are not antiques, these are all new. All from Europe. The settings are my usual.
I’m giving one medal to Sophia next month. She’s having her First Holy Communion. Lily gets another one in March too, for her preschool graduation. Glad my girls appreciate the beauty and power of these medals.
