This is the image of an Antique Wax letter Seal. This seal dates to circa 1870 and would have been used to seal correspondence.

This seal features a heraldic shield.. It features the image of an eagle with wings outstretched. The Eagles is known as a the king of the skies.... it was a device given to a lofty Warrior and a person of ingenuity.

The banner features a latin phrase AD ALTUM VIDO. This translates to 'to fly high'. Together with the Eagle the wearer is reminded to Spread their wings and fly high....

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
Leonardo da Vinci

This amulet is one of the larger ones in the SWALK shop and measures approx. 27mm x 19mm (this includes the bail). This is an approx. measurement as each SWALK amulet is made individually by hand.

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.
