"Saint Marianne" Medallion

Marianne Cope OSF, also known as Saint Marianne of Molokaʻi, (January 23, 1838 – August 9, 1918) was a German-born American nun who was a member of the Sisters of St Francis of Syracuse, New York, and administrator of its St. Joseph's Hospital in the city.
Known also for her charitable works, in 1883 she relocated with six other Sisters to Hawaiʻi to care for persons suffering Hansen's Disease on the island of Molokaʻi and aid in developing the medical infrastructure in Hawaiʻi.  Despite direct contact with the patients over many years, Cope did not contract the disease.

In 2005, Cope was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI. Cope was declared a saint by the same pope on October 21, 2012, and was the 11th person in  the United States to be canonized by the Catholic Church.

When Mother Marianne Cope was connonized, Dietrich Varez created a special print to honor her.  This pendant was inspired by this print and celebrates Saint Marianne of Molokai.   

The pendant is handmade of heavy 24K Gold over Solid Bronze which makes it very durable and it won't tarnish.    Bronze is much harder than some other metals and therefore it is more difficult to work than silver or solid gold, and it takes great skill and more labor to work with it.
