The French Kande Petite Joan Medallion and Pointu Pendant Necklace in Cafe Au Lait Y necklace features 18” of hand-curated Cafe Au Lait Mix with brass wire, the exclusive FK Rivet bezel, Petite Joan medallion and Pointu pendant.
The center medal shows our hero Joan of Arc, with her eyes agaze to the heavens as she listens intently to the voices of her guides Saint Michael, Saint Catherine of and St. Margaret. They are the saints who guided her in her soul's mission to drive the English from France. At age 18 Joan led the French army to victory, restoring the rightful King of France to the crown and almost ending the 100 Year War with England. Alas, she proved too powerful for the men of her time and she was captured and tried as a witch and found guilty. She was burned at the stake at age 19, but found innocent ten years later and fully exhonerated. She was canonized a saint on May 19, 1920. Her feast day is May 30th. She is the patron saint of all women, but especially political prisoners, sexual assault victims and independent free thinkers.
The Pointu medallion is fashioned from a vintage book mark honoring Notre Dame, as revealed by a crown flanked by the the initials N.D.. Notre Dame is a Cathedral in Paris dedicated to "Our Lady". Kande has artfully turned this bookmark into a wearable piece of art.
It is absolutely beautiful all by itself or layered with our other designs. Inspired by a trip to Paris designer Kande Hall mixes past and present to create inspirational jewelry inspired by French Medallions. Each piece of French Kande is handmade in Los Angeles by Californian artisans.
