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

This wax seal pendant is an impression from an antique wax letter seal. The seal dates from the early nineteenth century. It features the image of a tiny flower. There is no text on this particular wax seal pendant....This flower represents a 'forget me not'.

Legend has it that a knight and his lady were walking along a river edge. He was picking a posey of flowers when the weight of his armour caused him to fall into the water.

As he was drowning he threw the posey to the lady and shouted 'forget me not'.

The flowers were worn by ladies from then on as a sign of enduring and faithful love.

This is a lovely sentimental piece of victorian art and was to seal correspondence in the 1800's.......

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.
