Eagle and the snake..

A Symbol of an inner struggle overcome? or perhaps a physical or emotional struggle in ones life.

In Homer's odyssey which was written in the 8th century BCE describes the Greeks and Trojans witnessing the omen of an eagle flying above the armies with a snake in its grasp. The Eagle and the snake fight mid air and wound each other terribly. The Eagle drops the bloodied snake among the horrified Trojans.

The battle of the most powerful of birds with the earths most deadly reptile became the symbol of a struggle of two great forces. The greatness of the event gave it an almost cosmic significance.
Ever since, when man has tried to express a struggle or victory of cosmic proportion this battle has been invoked.

This is a hand cast copy of a history Ancient Greek coin. The original of this coin was struck in Olympia in 468 BCE to commemorate the 78th Olympic Games. The imagery and significance of this coin is still relevant today

Here I have taken my own little coin and cast it in sterling silver. It is perfect to wear as an accompaniment to your seals or on its own. One the reverse is SWALK and .925...

on it's own,

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 addition.
