Storms pass and hard times don't last forever.....

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 seal features the image of a cloud with the sun peaking out from behind. The text states in Latin, ‘est nubecula et veto transidit’. This translates to ‘it is but a little cloud and will pass quickly’.
meaning even when you are experiencing hard times, they will not last forever.

Storms will pass....
nothing lasts forever,
the sun will return....

(this refers to a quote by Francis Bacon (1561-1626) which was published in ‘The works of Francis Bacon, Lord Chancellor of England by Basil Montagu, 1884)

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.
