This is a sterling silver cast of an Antique Wax Seal from circa 1780. It features the image of a mother and three children in Roman clothes. In classical times the ideal family was three children. And when a woman produced three children she was entitled to enhanced liberties under Roman law which was called ‘jus trium liberorum’.
So this image represents family virtues and the ideal figure of motherhood.

Perfect gift for someone who devotes themselves to their family.

The pendant was cast in 100% sterling silver and has a nice weight for it's size. It has been oxidized to highlight the details in the antique design and hand polished for a aged patina.

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.
