Wax Seal Talisman Jewelry: Art, Craft and History

Thank you for reading!

Shop here for handmade jewelry designed to inspire, empower & connect people.

✿*¨`*•✿ Shop by meaning, or give a gift of symbolism ✿*¨`*•✿

In my home studio, I make each piece to order in reclaimed sterling silver.
Your talisman jewelry will be made by hand, just for you, with the intention of it becoming a part of your day...and your history.

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

♦♦♦♦♦ TALISMANS ♦♦♦♦♦
~~~are more than an accessory~~~
CONNECTIONS:

♦♦♦ Wax seal talismans with proverbs or mottoes become an extension of the wearer as they are worn daily to inspire, protect, and empower.
Quite often, my customers connect strongly with a piece's meaning and claim it as their own personal talisman, while others collect new talismans as they journey through life.

♦♦♦ When gifted, personally chosen pieces strongly connect two people. I sell many talismans in pairs.

♦♦♦ Talismans often spark conversations forming new connections between people.

✿*¨`*•✿
TALISMANS...

Symbolize: good luck, courage, strength, motivation, diligence, vigilance, love, loss, celebration of person, new beginnings, challenges, achievement, and 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 I love working with my customer to find the piece that feels just right.

AND MORE
✿ 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. If you have a dream pendant in mind, let's design it together.

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

♦♦These import duties, taxes, and charges are NOT included in the item price or shipping cost.

UK UK UK

♦♦♦ VAT INFO Government page: http://bit.do/UKEtsyVATinfo

Starting January 1, 2021, ETSY WILL COLLECT VAT from buyers on orders that meet the following criteria
The buyer is located in the UK.
The goods are dispatched from outside the UK.
The total value of the package (excluding delivery) is less than or equal to £135.

♦ For items under the £135 threshold, UK shoppers will see VAT-inclusive pricing when they view listings in search and browse, as well as on the listing page. The VAT amount seen before purchase is an approximate value.
The final VAT amount will be calculated at checkout.
♦ There is nothing THE SELLER can do about this.
♦ All goods sent to the UK are liable to customs duty and Value Added Tax on importation whether or not the package is marked as a “GIFT”

Unfortunately, the UK strictly enforces the VAT/customs fees added to items shipped from the US, and other non-European countries.
In addition to the VAT (20% of the value of the item) there is a charge of £8.00 (a fixed handling charge)

Please be aware that this handling charge is added after your parcel arrives in the UK and has nothing to do with the shipping cost you have already paid and the VAT that Etsy has already charged you on behalf of the UK.

This is charged to you by the UK. Customers have told me that you’ll receive a note from your mail carrier to go and pay this handling fees in order to pick up your parcel.

I just wanted to make sure you are aware of this so that there are no surprises on your end.
Your goods may be seized if you do not follow the rules. ( see insurance below) You may also be fined or prosecuted.

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 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.

Custom and personalized orders

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.

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.

Feedback and Reviews

I continue to have 100% Positive feedback.
You can read my reviews here:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/YourDailyJewels?ref=hdr#reviews

You must love your purchase or I have failed.

Please contact me if you are not 100% happy with your purchase.
Allow me the opportunity to make things right and I will!

Mistakes or miscommunications happen.
Please do not leave a negative or neutral review without first contacting me and allowing me the chance to correct the problem.

INTERNATIONAL VAT and Customs Costs

Import duties, taxes,(VAT) and charges are NOT included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
