This medal is recast from a vintage original from the Basilica of St. Anne de Beaupre in Quebec.  The following is the story of the beginning of the miracles there courtesy of the Basilica.  

Everything began in 1658 when Louis Guimont, suffering from excruciating back pain, came to help with the construction of the first chapel and was miraculously healed as a result. This would be the first of an endless series of healings. As early as 1665, an Ursuline nun, Blessed Marie de l'Incarnation, wrote the following words to her son:

"Seven leagues from here, there is a village called "The Little Cape", where there is a church dedicated to Saint Anne in which Our Lord is working great marvels in favour of the holy mother of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. There, the paralytics walk, the blind can see, and the sick are healed of every kind of illness."
- Marie de l'incarnation, 1665

The pilgrimage history of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré is one that is marked by extraordinary events, which continue even to this day.

 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 and Parisian life.  Each piece of French Kande is handmade in Los Angeles by Californian artisans.
