Double Sided Wax Seal Leather Necklace - "Wise As A Serpent / Innocent As A Dove"
Features the Latin words, SAPIENS SERPENS (Wise Serpent) with a snake on one side, and INGENUA COLUMBA (Innocent Dove) with a dove in flight on the other.
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.
Pendant measures approximately 1.2" tall by 0.5" wide, and is .925 sterling silver, nickel-free.
Leather cord necklace is sturdy and fully adjustable.
This is my third purchase from Maritime and my first silver piece. I have loved them all but this is by far my favorite. The wax **** look seems ancient, like something a diver would find in a sunken chest. The leather cord is strong and substantial but nice and soft. The message is close to my heart where it needs to be. Already considering my next silver piece. Thank you, fine craftsmen!
I love my Maritime necklace and charm. The leather necklace is sturdy but supple and SOFT on my skin. The charm feels like a real wax ****. I’ve had many compliments.
I m' very excited for my daughter to open this necklace. She ahs been wanting something from yall for quite some time. This is a very special piece for her and I know she will care for it for many years to come.
