Garde a Vous............

Protect you…… (I will protect you)

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

This particular seal features the image of a crouching panther…. ready to pounce. The text states in French 'Garde a Vous' or 'Protect you' and it is the panther telling the viewer that 'I will protect you'.

In heraldry the panther is a symbol of bravery in defence of the weak.

Size. ...
This pendant measures 12.76 mm. This is approximate however as each on 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.
