'Mon Amour dure apres a Mort.'

My love will endure after death..............

This is the impression of an antique wax letter seal. This seal was used to secure letters and correspondence in the nineteenth century. This particular seal is French and comes from the era of Charles X (1757-1836)

This seal features the image of a lone bird on a branch, the text around the image states 'Mon amour dure apres a mort....... this translates to 'My love will endure after death.

This image of the bird is very appropriate as most bird species are monogamous. There are even some species such as the bald eagle, the mute swan and the common raven that mate for life.

Size.......

The pendant measures approx. 14.45mm . 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.
