Tout Droit….. Straight ahead

Move forward… don't look back.

This is the impression of an antique wax letter seal which dates from the early 1800's. These wax seals were use to secure correspondence and they were often used as little messages themselves, revealing something about the sender. The messages were sometimes romantic, political, and wise as well as utilising historical heraldry, mottos and fables…….

This seal features the image of a tree. In heraldry trees are said to symbolise life and strength.
The text in the banner below states in French 'Tout Droit'. This translates to 'Straight ahead'. This seal reminds us that in life it is best to always move forward, and never look back.

size......

This wax seal pendant charm measures 18mm and has a nice solid weight for it's size.

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.
