This motto comes from a story from the court of Henry VIII ~

A panther was said to have escaped from her cage, and found some way away ready to spring upon an unsuspecting woman & infant. Having hurried to the top of a hill a mile away, the hunter still breathless from his ascent spotted the beast and was preparing to shoot the panther with his bow.

His son, fearing that his father in haste might weaken the accuracy of the force of his shot called to his father "Take Breath, Pull Strong"

In taking this advice, the hunter paused, took a breath and drew his bow strongly with a sure aim; and so killed the panther and saved the woman.


Each Plum and Posey wax seal design arrives accompanied by it's own meaning card, and tucked into an elegant jewelry bag ready for gift giving.

About Bronze

Bronze jewelry has a warm luster and a lovely rich antique gold color. Over time it will form a dark patina, this gives each piece its own individual, organic, and antiqued finish. If you prefer you can always bring back its original shiny finish with a jewelry polishing cloth.

PLEASE NOTE: Before you order please check sizing information - it can be hard to gauge jewelry sizes from pictures alone. On some of the seal pieces the text is so small as to be read only with a magnifying glass making the meaning a secret between you and those you choose to tell.
