The Latin phrase “Per ardua ad astra” means “through adversity to the stars,” a powerful reminder for this time. Our life here is given meaning by the adversities that we face and how we meet them. When we face them and work through them to the other side we are elevated. This pendant has a shooting star on the front and the motto on the back to remind you that your challenges are blessings that invite growth. In bronze and sterling silver the 1 3/4 inch wide pendant hangs on a 16 inch chain. Turn around time is 2 to 3 weeks.
