These earrings are the impression of an antique wax letter seal.
This seal was used to secure letters and correspondence in the nineteenth century. This particular stamp features the image of a fox.
Foxes are a symbol for wisdom, wit and shrewdness. They are made of 100% sterling silver and were oxidised and then hand polished to highlight the image and to accentuate the antique feel of these earrings.
The little seal stamps were hung on handmade sterling silver ear wires. The earrings are thinner and lighter then the pendant so they don't pull on the wearers ears.
They measure approx. 15mm across. This is only approximate however as each earring is made by hand and may vary slightly.
