Elle m’a bien conduit....
She guides me well. Or
It guides me well.



This is the image from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come is a huge veriety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...

This seal features the image of a star with the French motto ‘Elle m’a bien conduit’. This translates to ‘it/she guides me well’.

The North Star or ‘Polaris’ has been used for centuries by sailors and explorers. Using the North Star as an axis they steered their vessels on the correct course.
In this amulet the North Star is a metaphor for someone or something that lights your way. That guides you and that shows you your true path. Your true North.... the 'constant' that never fails.

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.
