Politically Incorrect. Wax Seal Fine Silver Necklace. Handmade Pendant
Sterling Silver Chain. Fine Silver. PMC Jewelry

Whether you are vertically challenged or horizontally enhanced, this fine silver pendant will look marvelous on you. Incredible even. Perhaps due to your vast intellectual capacity, your views on the world maybe be considered "politically incorrect." Again this pendant was made for you... after all, it says so right there on the front of it. Or quite possibly, it will make the perfect gift for a loved one that could use an early warning device when out in public and social interaction is required... or maybe you think it's just a funny little pendant that suits you just right. A piece that Bill Maher or Jon Stewart would be proud to wear.
_____________________________________________________________________________

This handmade silver pendant is roughly an inch in diameter and made of fine silver precious metal clay fired in our kiln, oxidized, tumbled and polished then strung on an 18" sterling silver chain.
Pendants are oxidized for the antiqued look and polished for a long time to allow your design to reveal the wonderful surface textures. Each piece is unique. Hope you like it!

Materials: Pendant is 99.99% pure silver (.999FS) and is hallmarked on the back. Ring and chain is sterling silver.

Please note : The difference between "fine" silver and "sterling" silver is that fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Sterling is only 92.5% silver with the remaining 7.5% being composed of other metals, usually copper. They look the same, wear & polish the same, but fine silver is more "pure" and is, therefore, more costly and often considered more desirable than sterling.

All items will come in a pretty gift box and bow, perfect for gift giving or giving the perfect gift to yourself!

Should you need a gift note to be included, please let us know in the notes section upon checkout.

Please allow up to 10 business days for creating your necklace.

Thank you for supporting Handmade!

Much love,

Renata and Jonathan

The History of Wax Seals

The use of seals can be traced back to the world’s earliest civilizations.

The use of wax seals did not begin until the Middle Ages. Kings, clergy, and royal courts used them in issuing official decrees and authenticating documents. By the 13th century, the use of wax seals spread from aristocrats to the ordinary freemen. Each had their own seal, and in a time when many were illiterate, they were used in place of a signature to authenticate legal or personal documents.

The wax was pressed with a handheld stamp or with a signet ring bearing the owner’s crest or coat of arms. In fact, the kissing of a signet ring of a noble became customary as a sign of respect and allegiance. Later, monograms and novelty stamps featuring popular motifs (such as Aesop’s Fables) were used for personal correspondence and very in vogue during the Victorian era.

Though not of wax, collecting seals as Medallions also became fashionable for stops along the European Grand Tours of the 18th and 19th centuries, a tradition amongst the wealthy aristocracy. James Tassie, a Scottish engraver, reproduced many artistic works of antiquity in miniature, as well as portraitures of well-known people of his era and were highly collected.
