SALE... There are many shades of bronze but I would prefer to carry just one or two shades in my shop so I am discounting those items that are a slightly different color.
Select a tiny bronze charm with a jump ring, so that it's ready to suspend on your own chain, or select a charm with just that tiny loop at the top for your own creations, or select the tiny bronze earrings that are suspended from gold filled ear wires... but hurry!
Supplies are limited!
Memento mori… a seriously small and simple bronze skull wax seal necklace charm. This bronze skull charm is a captivating tiny treasure reminding us that death comes to all living things.
- symbolism -
In heraldry, the skull symbolizes mortality. Make now matter.
Hand cast from just a portion of an antique Georgian wheel wax seal (1714 - 1830), shown in the last photograph.
The full size wax seal depicts the skull surrounded by Latin words ES FUI SUM ERIS which translate AS YOU ARE NOW SO ONCE WAS I, AS I AM NOW SO MUST YOU BE or YOU ARE AS I HAVE BEEN, YOU WILL BE AS I AM
- approximate measurement - 3/8” (10mm)
- wax seal charm metal - bronze
- photographed with an old US dime which is the same size as a current dime
- last photo depicts the sterling silver skull, same size

Impressed with history!
