She has a halo above her head and she holds a burning candle. A pair of pliers or pincers rests on a table in front of her, along with an extracted tooth. The flame and pliers are symbols of her martyrdom, which involved having her teeth broken and then being given the choice of renouncing Christianity or being burned alive.
