Thistle ….. emblem of Scotland.

The Thistle is the oldest known flower of a country and was adopted by Scotland in the reign of Alexander III (1249 - 1286).

The thistle is the perfect emblem and grows in the highlands, lowlands and islands of Scotland. It is a proud and regal plant which grows to a height of five feet, has no natural enemies because of the vicious spines the cover and protect it.

The thistle symbolises bravery, courage and loyalty in the face of treachery. The thistles vibrant pink or purple colour represents royalty and nobility and well as nobility of character.

This is a perfect little pendant to show your heritage or love of all things Scottish. Also great to give as a gift to your favourite Scottish person.

Perfect to wear with pride.

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.
