|What a gorgeous St. Therese medal!|
|The medal I have been using is nice...but a bit too big.|
Recently I was able to find an antique medal, which is exactly what I have in mind. It came from Belgium and is a unique and special piece.
What makes my vintage medal particularly lovely are the following:
1) The beautiful representation of St. Therese.
2) The unique shape and detailing of roses and ribbons that encircles the medal.
"Je veux passer mon ciel a faire du bien a sur la Terre".
Which translate to "I will spend my heaven doing good on Earth."
I especially love that this medal is so diminutive. It is about half the size of the antique reproduction that I already have.
Since I am unable to find anything like this on the market. I plan to have a mold made from it, so it can be reproduced. I am presently in communication with a caster, regarding having it cast in bronze. I will wait to have it cast in silver, because of the expense.
I am so excited. I am praying to St. Therese that it will not take too long!
UPDATE: My new Therese medals arrived at the beginning of May. The reproduction medal is pictured on my bracelet below. I will write a post to show case my medal after Mothers Day.
