Every moment counts...
The seal used to make this pendant features an hourglass with sand slipping by. The inscription reads: Attention au temps, or "Be Mindful of Time." It is a powerful reminder to live life to the fullest and cherish every minute with those we love as each moment is a treasure.

Please Note: I create each piece of Sealed in Time jewelry one-at-a-time by hand. Slight variances are natural, and are part of the joy of a hand-crafted piece of jewelry! Your "Time is Precious" seal will be created with the actual 1830's French brass seal!
