When it comes to unique, one of a kind personalized jewelry, Norah Downey is simply amazing! She's a true artist with attention to detail, creativity, and an all around great person to work with! I ordered this as a custom order with an idea of what I wanted, I explained the changes I wanted and she took the idea and ran with it and (as requested by me) added some of her own charm and creativity to it and created for me a work of art that was exactly what I was looking for!! I wear it every day with pride,, and everyone I've shown it to loves it because it's so unique! So if you're looking for something like this that you will treasure for a lifetime, Norah is the person you are looking for to make it,, and rest assured you will be very happy with the fine work she does. Thank You for reading my review, I hope it helps.

Norah's charms are some of the most beautiful I've come across! She helped me create such a meaningful necklace. Was wonderful to work with and communicates quickly. I look fwd to adding more charms to my collection! The pictures are pretty but in person they are simply gorgeous.

Wax Seal Jewelry: Art, Craft, and History

Thank you for reading!
One piece at a time, my jewelry is handcrafted with the intention of becoming a part of your history.

I use authentic, antique wax seal stamps and salvaged relics to create modern, fashionable jewelry with profound, symbolic meanings.

~~~Talismans ~~~ "more than an accessory"

I see it time and again, customers strongly connect with a pendant and it becomes their personal talisman. Wax seal stamp talismans with proverbs or mottoes become an extension of the wearer and are worn daily for inspiration. Many customers return to add a new talisman to their necklace as they journey through life.

Originally, (twenty-five thousand years ago) a talisman was believed to offer protection to the wearer.
Today, one may be worn also to symbolize good luck, courage, strength, motivation, vigilance, love, celebration of person, and so much more.
If you don't see what you're looking for, please ask! I have a vast collection of antique seals and relics not yet used.

~~~Additionally, I make unusual antique wax seal initial and monogram necklaces (that make very well received gifts!)

~~~Also, I craft one of a kind artisan pendants with colorful gemstones, and I have a growing line of jewelry for men.

~~~ Lastly, I sell supplies and accessories to help you create or enhance your own designs.

~~~ Custom pieces are the studio's mainstay. I am happy to work together with you to create your perfect piece of jewelry. Please ask!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

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.

Gift wrapping and packaging

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 Or, you can hand-write a note, take a picture, upload it to my email, and I can make a pretty card with your handwritten note. - no charge for either!
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.

Custom and personalized orders

Making jewelry to order takes time. My turn-around time fluctuates during the year, but is always at least 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 - only 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.

Care instructions

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.

Wholesale availability

Please contact me with any wholesale inquiries.
