Wax Seal Leo Constellation NecklaceWe Are All Smith
Engage life with our Leo Necklace made by casting copper clay with a wax seal. Hung on a 28 inch silver plated brass chain, each pendant is unique, just like each Leo is their own person, despite their many shared features.
During the first of his twelve labors in the Greek myth, Heracles had to defeat the Nemean Lion, now known as Leo. The Nemean Lion would lure warriors to its cave using women it had kidnapped, but it was impervious to any weapon, and the warriors' clubs, spears and swords were rendered useless against it. Only Heracles realized he had to overcome the lion with his own bare hands, breaking its back and freeing the trapped maidens. To commemorate this labor, Zeus placed the Lion among the stars.
Today, the Leo of our zodiac is much more than a mere animal of Myth. People are attracted to Leos for their zest for life and warm, engaging spirits. Their enthusiasm and generosity helps to encourage people in tough times. Leos don't dwell heavily on the past, and forgive easily, making them excellent, loyal friends. Although sometimes reactive and stubborn, Leos are always seeking to make things right in the world, and know when to move on when something's gone wrong.
