Double Sided Wax Seal Necklace - MEMENTO MORI / MEMENTO VIVERE

$67 $72

+ DESCRIPTION

Hand-casted in the USA, this double sided wax seal pendant features the Latin words MEMENTO MORI with a skull on one side, and MEMENTO VIVERE with an old sailor’s face on the other.

MEMENTO MORI means "Remember you will die." Let this side of the pendant remind you to live every day to its fullest potential, for we are not promised tomorrow. This is not a morbid message, but instead a reminder to make the most of every moment you are given. How do you want to live life? To its fullest, or with regrets of joy undiscovered? Life is fleeting, so treasure every gift, and guide others to that same appreciation for life.

MEMENTO VIVERE means “Remember to live.” It's easy to allow the tides of life to carry us along into passivity. We have to fight this tendency and remember to live our lives to the fullest as we walk through every day. This side of the pendant is a reminder to take some risks, take some rest, and appreciate every piece of joy that life has to offer.

We appreciate the dual nature of this juxtaposition of ideals, and enjoy the contrast that the images of life and death create. Wear this pendant with the same side always presented to a viewer, or switch between the two sides depending on which phrase you want to focus on for the day.

Great purchase for a great cause

Outstanding !! From the moment I opened the package I knew I was in for a treat. First class. From the beautiful box to the little origami row boat to the exquisitely cast pendant, couldn't ask or expect more from a purchase. And to think I'm helping them do righteous acts makes it better. Consider buying from these folks.
