I love the symbolism behind this necklace - a little bird sitting atop his birdcage surrounded by the French motto "La Liberte Me Rend Fidele, Freedom Makes Me Faithful. Love is.....freedom, keep me caged and I'm a prisoner, give me freedom to fly and I shall always return to you.
If you love something, set it free; if it comes backs it's yours, if it doesn't, it never was.
The best proof of love is trust.
The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost. Each one is hand cast in Sterling Silver from an antique Victorian era wax seal (1837 - 1901), a beautiful piece of history that's been captured in a pendant with a sentiment that's still relevant today. Such a meaningful gift!
