Filled with a deep trust in God and endowed with a wonderful administrative ability, this remarkable woman soon founded schools, hospitals, and orphanages in this strange land and saw them flourish in the aid of Italian immigrants and children. At the time of her death, at Chicago, Illinois on December 22, 1917, her institute numbered houses in England, France, Spain, the United States, and South America. In 1946, she became the first American citizen to be canonized when she was elevated to sainthood by Pope Pius XII. St. Frances is the patroness of immigrants.

I created this necklace with a very unique vintage relic medal of St. Frances Cabrini. I also added a vintage piece of a broken bracelet depicting Stations of the Cross on reverse of roses, vintage glass pearls and crystals.
I wanted to make it simple, unique but at the same time meaningful and bold.
This is the reverse of relic medal
