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.
Sterling pendant on a thick, adjustable leather cord necklace.
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.
Love this necklace. Got another one from the shop that has a chain necklace and also love that one, but the adjustable leather is definitely a favorite feature of this one.
Love everything about this pendant! The design, the meaning, it's easily adjustible, it "pays it forward" out into the world. Definitely will be a go to piece to wear daily. Grateful to have found such a unique treasure!
