Classic oval St Jude of Thaddeus antique replica medal on a medium peanut link chain with Lobster claw closure.
To gauge the size and proportions of this design, see the image of the necklace beside a quarter in the listing photos. A quarter is approximately 1” in diameter for reference.
Each antique medal in my Crown of Grace collection was lovingly searched for according to it’s age, shape, subject matter, and rarity. Many of the medals used during my hand replicating process are over a century old. I reproduce each piece by making a mold, hand pressing small batch bronze clay into the mold, drying, and kiln firing at 1420 degrees in a double carbon process. Each medal is hand wire brushed to give them a matte gold base and polished on the high relief areas to give them a luxurious Baroque light gold finish.
The chains that I use in my designs are hand selected to compliment the medals. They have a double layer of non tarnish matte gold finish for durability and tarnish resistance. In addition, they are nickel, cadmium, & lead free.

Though he is sometimes called “the Forgotten Saint”, St. Jude has never been one to forget those who turn to him. Unlike other saints who are given a limited and narrow patronage, St. Jude Thaddeus is invoked in innumerable situations, as the patron saint for all those cases which are most desperate, most hopeless, and most impossible.
