Faith Not Fear. A customer favorite, this charm is a reminder that there is nothing to fear but fear itself. Perfect to wear as an everyday necklace and reminder to let your faith be bigger than your fear.  

This late 18th century wax seal pendant depicts a shield with a cross on it the Latin Phrase below reads "Fides Non Timet" meaning "Faith not Fear". A heron stands atop the shield, a symbol of contemplation, vigilance, divine wisdom, and inner quietness. Herons are images of the eternal struggle of good against evil.

You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith. ~Mary Manin Morrissey

We have a great blog post that walks you through How to Select the Perfect Necklace Chain

Keep in mind that most jewelry is delicate to some degree. Unfortunately, no matter what you do to protect it, metal will dull and tarnish over time. Contact with lotion, perfume, and daily perspiration will eventually take its toll on jewelry. Moisture and humidly make this happen even faster.

We have also found that if you live close to the ocean or in an area that is more humid, your jewelry may need extra care to keep it looking shiny and new. And, as convenient as it may be to store your jewelry in the bathroom, this too is a bad idea. Store your jewelry in airtight containers or a resealable plastic bag when not in use, this will protect your piece from humidity and prevent tarnishing and scratches when not in use.

A clever little trick is to place a piece of chalk or a silica packet, (you know the kind that comes with a new pair of shoes or purse?) in your jewelry box to collect humidity and delay tarnish. For all of these situations you'll find that a quick wipe with a polishing cloth will return it's luster and remove any tarnish.

You love your jewelry, we get it, but we always recommend removing it before working out or doing household chores that cause perspiration, this will quickly dull your jewelry and you'll find the back of your pendant will look as though it's collected a layer of grime.

The most frequent question we receive is how to remove this build up. We sell little polishing pads that are cellular foam with permanently bonded micro-abrasives that will quickly remove the build up. 

We believe in extraordinary customer service and want you to be happy with your purchase.

    Beautiful piece

    I just received my pendant and I have no words to describe this piece except beautiful and timeless. It has weight to it that speaks to the quality and you can see the images that stamped perfectly. I already have a baby wheat white gold chain that I have it on. I will be wearing this daily!

    I love my Faith Not Fear Wax Seal Pendant, it is always a reminder to me to have faith through all life's challenges. I have two other pendents by Shannon that have special meaning for me also, each one is so professionally made and just beautiful. Thanks again Shannon.
