Je me consume pour eclairer...
I consume in giving light.

I give my all for my purpose.......

This is the image from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come is a huge veriety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...

This seal features the image of an oil lamp. These oil lamps have been used for thousands of years. You fill the lamp with oil and light the wick. The wick absorbs the oil and the flame gives out light.
The lamp's only job is to provide light.... and in doing so consumes all the oil.

The text around the image states in French 'je me consume pour eclairer' this translates to 'I consume in giving light'.

This reminds us that when something is important (like the lamp providing light) you must give 100% of yourself to the job. Go the extra mile....

'If a job is worth doing it's worth doing well'.

This seal is perfect for someone who wholeheartedly throws themselves into a task. Someone who gives their all....

Sizing......

The charm measures 17.9mm across the centre. This may vary however as each one is made 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.
