The following two items came up in the same general area but a couple of visits a part.

I suspect they are charms off a child’s bracelet or similar...The metal on both is painfully thin, even thinner than a drinks can...

The heart shaped one had a cross and a couple of other religious items on one side and I think an image of the Virgin Mary on the other although my grandson is adamant it’s a penguin! 🙄

The small round item has a male head who I take as being Jesus while the other side has a pattern and some writing but it’s too faint to read...

I am thinking it might be Sunday school or Christening related and fairly modern?

Thanks in advance,

Peter

The top one looks like the dangly bit on the end of a set of rosary beads. Or it could just be a medallion.

*shivers* I have just had flash backs to my convent school education :shock:

Both modern, 20th century but good finds none the less :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I guessed it was modern, if for no other reason than that the green blue "stones" look distinctly plastic...they both obviously have religious symbols so the rosary bead idea is a good shout...

You would get on well with my grandson! :roll: :)

Edited to add the smaller round item was a bugger to find once I had the clod up, so was pleased it was a "something" and not a bit of foil as I initially expected...

I think they are both a bit cheaply /crudely made to be anything too significant...
