Therese of the Child Jesus Medal
This option is currently sold out.
This little charm is very sweet for a girl to wear on a chain or ribbon. Saint Theresa is the saint of the Little Way, meaning doing everything with love, no matter how small. Sue Kouma Johnson painted the original of this print from an old photo of the saint which was taken with her sister. Of course, it was in black and white so she spiced it up with some color and roses. It turned out pretty and is great as a medal or pendant.
Saint Therese of Lisieux, also known as "the Little Flower," lived and died at the end of the nineteenth century as a girl, really. She was only 24 when she died, as a Carmelite nun. During her last illness she was ordered to write her story, which she called The Story of a Soul. It spells out her simple spirituality, the way of littleness, or spiritual childhood. That is why Sue likes to portray her as a child.
The same image is on both sides.

All of our pendants are made with lead free solder and glass. Great on a chain or bracelet. We offer a ball chain for elsewhere in my shop.
If you put the charm/medal on a key chain, it may get broken if not treated kindly. It is glass. If you want one for a key chain, We can custom make your medium charm/medal with a thicker glass for $3. Small charm/medals don't need thicker glass, but either way, they need to be on a chain before you add them to your key ring.
