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 thistle. The thistle is the national emblem of Scotland. The text states 'Dinna forget' or 'Do not forget'......

While researching this seal I found a beautiful old Scottish poem and it goes so well with it, that I thought I would share it with you......

DINNA FORGET ME.

The last time we roved through Lochaber's dark glen,
When the red blooming heather wi' night dew was wet,Fix this text
You ken, bonnie lass, what ye promised me then;
You canna forget love ! you canna forget !

You said when the harvest moon blink'd forth again,
When the gowans' gay hues and the simmer beams met,
That the kirk and the good ring should make you my ain.
Dinna forget love ! oh, dinna forget !

Ann now the sun glitters o'er braes, and through birk ;
Though late in the gloaming his ray lingers yet :
Simmer is come, love ; the ring and the kirk
Dinna forget, love ! oh, dinna forget !

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.
