STOIC AMOR FATI PENDANT NECKLACE
Amor Fati is one of Stoicism’s most well-known and universally applicable teachings. Literally meaning “Love Your Fate”, Amor Fati is a powerful reminder that we are always at the mercy of life and all of its contents. We can either fight with life or come to accept, embrace and with a bit of practice, even ‘love’ all aspects of it.
Whether you experience heartbreak, untimely death, a pandemic, job lay-offs, a surprise promotion, the birth of a child or deep-rooted happiness where time seems to stand still, you can learn to love it all. This is the dance of life. This is the yin and the yang. We can’t appreciate the good without the bad, and vice-versa.
The challenge that Amor Fati presents us is to love life and all of its contents. It’s not to teach you to be a helpless bystander in your life, but to allow you to own and thrive in whatever circumstances that life throws at you.
Front of the pendant: Features a minimalistic design that clearly displays the important message of ‘Amor Fati’. The fire at the centre of the piece is a visual representation of the message, taken from Marcus Aurelius’s famous line: “A blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it”.
Back of the pendant: Features a love heart, a simple but prominent reminder to love whatever life brings you. The ‘A’ and ‘F’ represents ‘Amor Fati’.
The pendant is 20mm in diameter and 2mm thick. The pendant is brass metal which has then been polished and gold plated.
After this, the pendant has then been enamelled and hand painted in black with white details. A layer of clear resin has been applied to both sides to encase the paint for protection. The black enamel against the gold background gives off a stunning effect and there is also red, orange and white enamel to further enhance the imagery of the fire and the heart.
The gold plated chains are a base metal that have been gold plated. The chains are delicate but strong.
These pendants aren’t suitable for wearing in the shower/for swimming as the moisture/chemicals can damage the plating and resin.
All pendants come securely and thoroughly packaged and include a black necklace box.
