I call this one of my "hybrid" pendants. This is an authentic, antique, French medal. It was made in c. 1905. The French made these ornate medals for sports prizes. It is solid bronze plated with .800 silver. I gently ground the athletes off the front and glued on a vintage, former clip back, rhinestone earring. The 2 part epoxy resin I used to attach the earring is #7 on the MOHS scale for hardness. That means the adhesive dries with the hardness of quartz without being brittle.
Questions? Please don't hesitate to ask; I answer promptly.
