Je me consume pour eclairer... I consume in giving light. I give my all for my purpose....... This is the image from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come is a huge veriety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs... This seal features the image of an oil lamp. These oil lamps have been used for thousands of years. You fill the lamp with oil and light the wick. The wick absorbs the oil and the flame gives out light. The lamp's only job is to provide light.... and in doing so consumes all the oil. The text around the image states in French 'je me consume pour eclairer' this translates to 'I consume in giving light'. This reminds us that when something is important (like the lamp providing light) you must give 100% of yourself to the job. Go the extra mile.... 'If a job is worth doing it's worth doing well'. This seal is perfect for someone who wholeheartedly throws themselves into a task. Someone who gives their all.... Sizing...... The charm measures 17.9mm across the centre. This may vary however as each one is made by hand. 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
