****************************


What wonderful stories these pieces can tell!
Dainty, antique and modern at the same time. These tiny pendants are a lovely representation of the lost art of letter-writing. Universally used throughout history; today, they appear only on the most formal correspondence.

Originally, the wax seal stamps used to create these pendants were most likely part of a writing desk-set, used so the writer could stamp a charming message into wax to seal their correspondence.
I am happy to preserve these antique seals (from the 1800's-1850's), in sterling silver, for the next generations to enjoy.


I work in recycled sterling which causes zero negative environmental impact from mining or toxins.


******THE PENDANTS*****


If you would like to see more photos of one pendant in particular, please ask!



1. Quick -- Steam Train - Time goes by so fast, this petite piece is a lovely reminder to cherish every minute of everyday.



2. Forever -- Two connected hearts, a gift for your true love or closest friend



3. Bee Silent -- Might be given to one whom you trust with your deepest secrets .
One who will be silent.
In heraldry, the bee symbolizes diligence and tireless effort, i.e.: "busy as a bee".
Bees are my favorite non –furry creature, (although their legs are a little fuzzy). Their lives depend on their social activity and strong, teamwork oriented community. They are efficient, industrious, and well governed by their matriarchal Queen. We can learn so much from them.



4. Ever Gay -- A happy, silhouetted squirrel along with the optimistic “Ever Gay" ; a sweet reminder to keep your spirits up.



5. Faithful -- Depicting an elegant dog. The heraldic symbol of the dog has the special meaning of courage, vigilance, and loyalty. Throughout history, dogs have been seen in a positive light: faithful, honest and willing to fight injustice.



6. Love/Truth --Hand over Heart, always sincere. A gift for your true love or closest friend.



7. Forget Me Not --Flower - In Victorian times the flowers were worn by ladies as a sign of enduring and faithful love. Legend has it that a knight and his lady were walking along a river edge. He was picking a posey of flowers when the weight of his armor caused him to fall into the water and as he was drowning he threw the posey to the lady and shouted 'forget me not'.



8. Such is Life--A Ship in Rough Seas, symbolizing perseverance and its rewards, or it may be thought to indicate that
we must learn to take the good with the bad.

NOTE the jewelry dimensions.

These are really petite pendants. I make each one individually so no two pieces will be exactly alike and there will be minor variations from the photos.
Photos are taken with a macro lens to show detail. On some of the very small and very old wax seal pieces, the text is so small it can only be read with a magnifying glass. It is like wearing a little secret. You can choose whom to share the meaning with.

PLEASE Check the dimensions of jewelry before you order.
It is hard to gauge actual size from photos taken with a macro (magnified) setting. Picture are enlarged to show detail and a photo showing scale is included.

Many pendants I make are crafted using very old antiques or ancient relics to form an impression. Cracks + age-worn areas are extolled rather than fixed. Thus, some small words on your pendant may not be clearly read with the naked eye.

You can keep your secret and wear your story close to your heart.
Share it with whom you choose.

If you want to read the words of an impression clearly with the naked eye, antique wax seal stamp jewelry is not the right style of jewelry for you. To avoid disappointment, please don't order.
Your purchase will arrive in a reusable muslin sac.
However, I am happy to ready your purchase for gifting with a lovely box and ribbons. Please contact me if you need gift packaging.

I am happy to include a card with your sentiment no charge.
Contact me through the Etsy 'convo' system.

I try to re-use shipping/packing materials where I can, to lower my carbon footprint and waste. Your package may arrive in a padded envelope that does not look perfect, or a new and suitable one that you can re-use.
Making jewelry to order takes time. My turn-around time fluctuates during the year but is always three to five business days before I ship. I post current turnaround times in my shop announcement on page one of the shop.

Feel free to ask for a shipping date estimate upon ordering.

I do not charge extra for a 'RUSH' order. Please let me know your deadline and I will do my best to accommodate - if possible - no promises!


Custom and personalized items are not returnable.

This includes all initials, pendants with reverse patterns and chains sold by length.

Please contact me if you have an issue with your purchase.
I sell "oxidized" or antiqued jewelry with a patina from a hand applied process that results in the great antique effect you see.

Don't use silver polish or you may remove some of the "aged" effect.

Sterling oxidizes (darkens) naturally over time. To clean and polish, use a dry silver polishing cloth.
Sterling chains brighten up with mild soap and water.

Your jewelry's patina will change over the years. If it is not how you once loved it, I am happy to re-vamp it and get the patina back to the way you like. No charge except shipping. You can contact me at any point for this free service.

Handmade jewelry is made with care and thus, must be worn with care.
Please contact me with any wholesale inquiries.
I continue to have 100% Positive feedback.
