Destiny separates us in vain.......

This pendant was cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come in a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...

This seal features the image of two trees separated by a path or river. Although the trunks of the trees are separated, the boughs of the trees are leaning together and meeting.
The text that surrounds the image states in French 'En Vain Le Destain Nous Sépare'. This translates to 'Destiny separates us in vain'. This teaches the reader that although two people may be destined to be apart, a way to be together can always be found.

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.
