I’ve created this necklace charm by hand casting an antique wax seal into eco friendly fine silver (made from recycled silver). The wax seal comes from a turned ox bone stacking tower of glass intaglio seals which dates back to 1840! After casting, I oxidize the charm to highlight the details .
The fine silver wax seal charm measures approximately 5/8”in width.
The wax seal charm is shown on a sterling silver chain, but you can also choose to order just the charm. See the options in the drop down box.

*please note, the last photo shows the seal set from which this pendant is stamped and it is not for sale
I assume the seal shares the same sentiment Allan Cunningham (1784 - 1842) wrote about in his poem:
The Thistle’s Grown Aboon (above) the Rose
Full white the Bourbon lily blows,
And fairer haughty England's rose.
Nor shall unsung the symbol smile,
Green Ireland, of thy lovely isle.
In Scotland grows a warlike flower,
Too rough to bloom in lady's bower;
His crest. when high the soldier bears,
And spurs his courser on the spears.
O there it blossoms - there it blows
The thistle's grown aboon the rose.
Inspired by history... old world charm made wearable!
