Wax Seal Talisman Jewelry: Art, Craft and History

Thank you for reading!
Here, you can shop for handmade jewelry designed to inspire, empower & connect people. Shop by meaning, and wear with purpose.

One piece at a time, in my home studio, my reclaimed sterling talisman jewelry is handcrafted with the intention of becoming a part of your day...and 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"
♦♦♦ Wax seal talismans with proverbs or mottoes, become an extension of the wearer and are worn daily to inspire, protect, and empower. Many strongly connect with a pendant's meaning and claim it their personal talisman. Others collect new talismans as they journey through life.

♦♦♦ When gifted, they strongly connect the two people. Additionally, many talismans are sold in pairs.

♦♦♦ Talismans spark conversation. This forms new connections between otherwise unconnected people.

I create talismans to symbolize good luck, courage, strength, motivation, vigilance, love, a 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 and love working with my customer to find the piece that feels just right.

~~~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, earrings, and bracelets with colorful gemstones and necklaces of antique beads. And, I have a growing line of jewelry for men.

~~~ Lastly, I make and 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 or assemble your perfect piece of jewelry. Please ask!

Sustainability + Fair Trade

~~~The studio works only with reclaimed sterling silver and golden bronze.
With recycled metals, the negative impact on the environment during mining, and the potential for human rights abuse, and poor or dangerous working conditions is eliminated.

I purchase gemstones from transparent US businesses who purchase from International "Fair Trade" businesses that commit to fair wages, cooperative workplaces, consumer education, environmental sustainability, respect for cultural identity, and public accountability.

I hope you come back soon! I am so happy you have visited.

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.
