Fide sed cui vide.......
Trust, but be careful whom (you trust).

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

This Tassie seal features the image of a three sided head. A beautiful Greek god type face, a bearded man (upside down) and a boar (above the bearded man). The motto states in Latin “Fide sed cui vide”. This translates to ‘Trust, but be careful whom (you trust)’.
People show the world many different faces.

This seal teaches us that some people can be duplicitous, and that we must be careful whom we place our trust in.

‘Life is not about the people who act true to your face. It’s about people who remain true behind your back”.

This pendant measures approx. 19 mm at its widest. This size is only approximate though because each piece is made individually by hand and may vary slightly.

Please choose from the drop down menu how you would like your charm:
-on it's own,
-with a sterling silver 1.4mm Rolo chain of various length

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.
