Jessica discovered personal ephemera from Gladys’ 21st birthday party, hidden away from harm in the pocket of a worn, leather suitcase. Birthday cards, evocative photographs, letters, even her father’s birthday speech lay waiting patiently for Jessica to seek inspiration from and in turn reignite the living memory of Gladys.
Shooting Hearts & Horse Shoes we're symbols that we're present on many of her vintage birthday cards.
Hand stamped Silver Mini Horse shoe Wax Seal with a precious stone grain set in center on signature JdL bangle
The much requested for mini wax seals have now been made! These amulets of 'Good Luck' as represented by the Horse Show symbol and 'Love', as represented by the Shooting Heart symbol, commemorate Glady's 21st birthday.
Center stones in mini seals.
- Horse shoe: Fire Opal (orange)
- Shooting Heart: Garnet (red)
The beauty of this piece is each wax seal is individually hand stamped therefore meaning that no two will ever look the same.I have adopted elements of acrostic jewellery within this collection in order to conceal hidden messages within the pieces. The stones within this collection therefore spell LOVE.
L - Lapis Lazuli
O - Fire Opal.
V - Vermeil/Garnet (pictured)
E - Emerald
Mini seal charms are also available on a signature JdL side hammered Bangle, Pin, Ring or as Earrings and sold at my boticca.com shop.
