These cufflinks were cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come is a huge verity of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs... This seal features a ship on the wave and it states across the top 'such is life'. The ship is an emblem of Joy happiness and adventure...... being tossed on the waves means taking what life throws at you and being at the mercy of fate. 'Such is life' is the English version of the phrase French 'c'est la vie' or 'that's life'. ******************************************************************************************************* 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. ******************************************************************************************************** For further information about antique seals, SWALK designs or the designer please visit: www.swalk.ie
