This ship pendant depicts a square-rigged ship at sea with the French phrase "telle est la vie," which means "such is life" above. Much like a ship at sea, smoothly sailing in the calm or precariously riding through a storm, we will endure all kinds of weather in life.

The pendant was cast in fine silver (99.9% pure silver) from a Victorian wax seal. I individually cast each pendant, then I hand-polish the piece to a beautiful shine. An oxidized finish is added to accent the image. The pendant is 17 mm x 12 mm. The necklace is 17 inches (43 cm). If another length would work better for you, simply make note at checkout.

The necklace is lovely on its own or layered with another necklace, such as the initial wax seal necklace.

This necklace is made to order, so please allow up to 4 business days for your necklace to ship.
