This is the impression of an antique wax letter seal. This seal was used to secure letters and correspondence in the nineteenth century. These are tiny earrings.... yet the antique image is perfect and crisp and a close up photograph shows how perfect the craftsmanship was on the original seal.
This seal features the image of a beehive with a swarm of bees around it. Bees are the symbol of industry and diligence.
The earrings measures approx. 9mm across the top. This is approx. however as each pair are handmade and there may be small variations.
The earrings are made from sterling silver and this includes sterling ear posts and sterling silver butterfly backs.
These will be ready to ship within 3 days...... usually much sooner though! They will be shipped by registered post.
Your purchase will be beautifully packaged and will come with a professionally printed explanation card explaining about the seal etc.....
Why buy from SWALK?.......
☆ Every piece made by SWALK jewellery is made individually by hand. It is not cast or shuttled off a machine or 'assembled'.
☆ Each piece and every metal component is solid sterling silver. Sterling silver had been the first choice of metal artists for centuries as it has just the right balance of copper (.75) and silver (.925) to make it durable, hard wearing, and long lasting
☆ Every link is securely soldered for security and safety so you don't loose your piece
☆ Customer service is highly prioritised here at SWALK.... so if anything goes wrong, your piece isn't as you imagined, or for any reason you want to return it.. that's 'A OKAY' with me!
Wax Seal Jewelry......
Each piece offered for sale is an imprint or cast of an antique wax seal from my personal collection. I use 100% sterling silver as this has the strength and durability needed for a piece of jewelry that is to be worn for years. All the jumps rings, clasps etc, are also sterling silver and each part is soldered, also for strength and durability. My intention is to make a piece that could become an heirloom too and for it to last generations.
Each piece is individually handmade and therefore no two pieces will be exactly the same, they will however be extremely similar. The mark of the maker has been purposely left on the casts. The signs of age, cracks and tool marks all add to the charm of the piece and are an intentional feature.

All SWALK amulets are made of sterling silver. This has a copper content of .075 and a silver content of .925 . It therefore can be subject to tarnish like every other sterling object.
Please do not dip your piece into 'silver dip' as this will remove the 'patina' on the piece.

If your amulet becomes discoloured you can polish it with a silver cloth and then wash it with a gentle soap.

I do not offer this service at the moment. You can of course get your own jeweller to engrave the back of the seal, but any items that have been customised or altered cannot be returned.
The seals I use to impress the images are antique and are usually at least a hundred years old. I feel incredibly lucky everytime I 'find' a new seal. The image that the seal impresses is the only size it comes in. The sizes will always be mentioned in the listing.
I CAN however make a larger 'border' of silver around the image to make the amulet bulkier. Please contact me for pricing if this is something you are interested in.
