Live and die for those we love….

This wax seal pendant was cast from an antique 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 antique wax seal features the words "Live and die for those we love."

The female pelican was believed to wound her breast with her long, curved bill, drawing blood to feed her young.

The term for this is ‘vulning’ itself and there are some birds during the nesting season that grow red feathers upon their breast, which may be where the legend came from.

But for this noble act, the bird became a symbol of piety, self-sacrifice, and virtue associated with the Holy Eucharist.

Size.......

The pendant measures approx. 15.2mm . 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.
