This is the impression of an antique wax letter seal. This seal was used to secure letters and correspondence in the nineteenth century. It is one of the smallest pendants in the shop and is dainty and petite..... yet the antique image is perfect and crisp and a close up photograph shows how perfect the craftsmanship was on the original seal.

This wax seal impression features the head of a lion with a crown. The image is set within a shield. The lion has always held a high place in heraldry as the emblem of deathless courage and, hence, that of a valiant warrior.

The shield shape is the emblem of protection and secure covering.....

Size........

The pendant measures approx. 10.3mm . This may alter slightly due to the fact that each one 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.
