DUALITY + ANCHOR
From the Bible, NIV translation, Matthew 10:16: “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” “Wise as a serpent and innocent as a dove” is a shortening of the verse, meant to encourage caution and shrewdness while tempering it with kindness and humility, leaving behind a self-serving agenda and moving forward with mature trust and healthy wariness.
We appreciate the dual nature of this juxtaposition of ideals, and enjoy the contrast that the images of snake and dove 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. We chose to pair the wax seal with an anchor to provide a reminder that you have things in your life that prevent you from going adrift in the sea of life and help keep you grounded.
Great quality, nice looking, light weight,
I love my necklace. Anchors are one of my favorite symbols for multiple reasons. This anchor and wax seal necklace are beautifully crafted. I love the detail on the wax seal. Both pendants are substantial in the sense that you can feel their weight but they aren't heavy. I chose the 26" chain even though I'm petite in height (only 4'11") so that length is longer on me than someone taller but I like that length of necklace. Overall a beautiful piece and I wear it often.
