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 is the image of an antique wax letter seal. It is an early seal and dates from the late 1600's to the early 1700's.

It features the image of a heart pierced by arrows. The first know depiction of a heart representing romantic love dates to 1250's. The 'wounded heart' indicating lovesickness is depicted by a heart pierced by arrows (Cupid's). Cupid is the God of desire, romantic love, attraction and affection. Therefore to be hit by cupid's arrow was to render the victim 'lovestruck'.

This seal measures approx. 17mm across (these are all hand made individually so this may vary slightly) The length of the bracelet is up to you and can be chosen from the drop down menu at checkout. The bracelet closes with a lovely teardrop lobster clasp.

The Amulet and bracelet are both 100% sterling silver and the back of the Amulet is stamped .925
Each link is soldered shut to help prevent losing your SWALK original.

This bracelet will come boxed and ribboned and ready for giving.
It also comes with a professionally printed explanation card.

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.
