SUM LEO FORTIS .... I am a strong lion.

This is an impression of an antique wax letter seal. It is one of the oldest seals in my collection and dates from the 13th century. Yes it is 700 years old!

It features the image of a Lion with a long tail. In Latin around the image in medieval script are the words SUM LEO FORTIS. This translates to ‘I am a strong Lion’.

Wear this pendant to remind yourself that you are fierce, you are strong, you are courageous....... You are a strong Lion!

Size......

This is a fairly big pendant and measures approx. 19mm in diameter.
This size is only approximate though because each piece is made individually by hand and may vary slightly.

Options.......

Please choose from the drop down menu how you would like your charm:
on it's own,
or with a chain of various lengths

Wax Seal Jewelry......
Each piece offered for sale is an imprint or cast of an antique wax seal from my personal collection. I use 100% sterling silver as this has the strength and durability needed for a piece of jewelry that is to be worn for years. All the jumps rings, clasps etc, are also sterling silver and each part is soldered, also for strength and durability. My intention is to make a piece that could become an heirloom too and for it to last generations.
Each piece is individually handmade and therefore no two pieces will be exactly the same, they will however be extremely similar. The mark of the maker has been purposely left on the casts. The signs of age, cracks and tool marks all add to the charm of the piece and are an intentional feature.
