La raison du plus fort....
The reason of the strongest is always the best... or Might is always right

This is the image from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1700'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 the image of a lamb quietly drinking from a stream and a large hulking wolf beside it.
The text states ‘la raison du plus forte’ in French. This translates to ‘the reason of the strongest is always the best’

It refers to Aesop’s fable of the wolf and the lamb. The fable tells us about the meeting of a wolf and lamb. in order to take the lamb’s life the wolf accuses it of various misdemeanors, all of which the lamb proves to be impossible. Losing all patience, the wolf says the offenses must have been committed by someone else in the family and that it does not propose to delay its meal by enquiring any further. The morals drawn are that the tyrant can always find an excuse for his tyranny, and that the unjust will not listen to the reasoning of the innocent.

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.
