Navigate your direction with a sterling silver reversible ship and compass rose wax seal necklace ~ meaningful wax seal jewelry. On one side is a small ship surrounded by the words SUCH IS LIFE and on the other side a compass rose... a beautiful 16 pointed star of the compass rose symbolizing guidance, direction and protection. Choose which side best fits your wanderlust mood!

The reversible wax seal charm measures approximately 1/2" (13mm) and is suspended on a sterling silver chain with a spring ring clasp. Select the necklace length or just the charm at checkout.
Other chains and lengths are available: https://www.etsy.com/shop/suegrayjewelry?section_id=6761412

I hand cast the ship on this wax seal charm using a Victorian era trinket wheel seal (1837 - 1901) and use a portion of compass rose wax seal on the other side. After casting in sterling silver, I oxidize and hand polish both sides of the charm to highlight the details.

~ Such is Life... an acceptance of the predictable, and unpredictable fortunes of existence, often spoken with an air of weary resignation.
remember... "you cannot direct the wind but you can adjust the sails." ~ a German proverb

~ the compass rose is an ornate 16 pointed star, symbolic of the North Star has been used for centuries as an aid to navigation, since it seemingly never moves… symbolizing guidance, direction and protection.
