This could well be one of the most beautiful St. Francis motivational pins you ever see. Saint Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment.
The image is a painting by Francisco de Zurbarán (baptized November 7, 1598; died August 27, 1664) who was a Spanish painter. He is known primarily for his religious paintings depicting monks, nuns, and martyrs, and for his still-lifes. Zurbarán gained the nickname Spanish Caravaggio, owing to the forceful, realistic use of chiaroscuro in which he excelled. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francisco_de_Zurbarán
Zurbara's masterpiece has been digitized onto a mountain jade cabochon. Snowy white twinkles seem to glow from behind. Simple elegance that keeps the humble look which is only fitting to honor the Patron Catholic saint in this religious jewelry.
The cabochon is encircled with a gold plated, cast brass, ornate frame. Below dangle goldstone gemstones catseye beads, fire polished Czech crystals and Bali bead accents with a malachite gemstone cross featured in the center.
Measures aprx. 2 1/4 inches long X 1 1/4inch wide. A stainless 3/4 inch pin back is placed vertically making attachment easy.
