As you are... so once was I


This pin/ tie tack was cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come in a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...

This seal features the image of a skull with the words in French, 'J'ai ete le suis, tu seras' this is the skull speaking to us and saying 'As you are.... so once was I'. Or ' I was just like you'..... alive and well and reading', now I'm a skull... a lesson on mortality.

This tie tack features a strong pointed pin that is 1cm in length and is perfect to pierce multiple layers of material. The stud back is also sterling silver and features a ‘pinch release’ system. This pin is awesome on a tie, jacket lapel, or bag. But is too heavy for, say, a t-shirt or blouse.

Size. ...
This tie tack measures 13.48mm. The pin is 1cm long. This is approximate however as each on is made individually.
