This wonderful sterling silver necklace, with an impression of an antique wax seal, comes with a tiny key of its own.... You have the key to my heart.

'You have the key.......'
'Tu as las clef'

For a limited run I have sourced these tiny little key charms and added them to this lovely seal. The seal states 'tu as la clef' or you have the key (to my heart).... So I was longing to put them together for you. They are attached with a hand twisted large jump ring that you can just simply hang on your chain or cord.

This pendant was cast from an antique wax seal stamp from the 1800's. These were used to seal letters and correspondence and come in a huge variety of designs, mottos, sentiments, heraldry and proverbs...

This seal features the image of a bird in flight. In its beak it hold a heart. The text around the image stares in French, 'Tu as la clef'. This translates to 'you have the key'. The complete meaning being 'you have the key to my heart.'

This pendant measures 15 mm. This is approximate however as each on is made individually by hand.

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.
