I carve the original of each piece in clay. They are cast in lead-free pewter. They can be used as pendants or put on key chains. Each piece comes in a jewelry pouch with a story card stating the following:

Monica bore many worries: as a child, she was an alcoholic; as a young woman, her family forced her to marry a pagan who was violent and cheated on her. Her mother-in-law tormented her. And there’s more: her brilliant son, St. Augustine, rejected her faith, had a child out of wedlock, and ran off for Italy with his lover. But Monica never gave up, eventually overcoming her worries by transforming them into kindness and a source of determined hope. In the end, her husband and mother-in-law came to admire her, and she was lovingly reconciled with Augustine. (She is also the patron of those seeking patience.) This medal was handmade by Hank Schlau and cast in pewter; on the back is the word "patientia."

Dimensions: 1.25 inches high (including the bail) x .75 inches (wide) x 1/8 inch deep
