As you are now so once was I ~ skull wax seal pendant necklace... ES FUI SUM ERIS ~ beautiful golden bronze wax seal jewelry.
The shiny bronze wax seal skull is surrounded by the 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.

In heraldry, the skull is a reminder to live life while you can or “momento mori” in Latin.

The skull wax seal charm measures approximately 1/2” in width (15mm) and is suspended on an antiqued brass chain with a spring ring clasp. Select the necklace length or just the charm at checkout.
I do have a longer antiqued brass chain, different style, available here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/218889509/long-antiqued-brass-necklace-chain?ref=shop_home_active_5

This mysterious skull wax seal charm is hand cast, in golden bronze, from a beautiful gemstone wheel wax seal, dating back to the Georgian era between 1714 - 1830. Then I oxidize and polish it to highlight its beautiful details.

Here is the entire epitaph from a tombstone in the Howff Graveyard in Dundee, Scotland:
Remember man as you pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so must you be,
Remember man that you must die.
