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 Shoe we're symbols that we're present on many of her vintage birthday cards.
The much requested for mini hand stamped wax seals have now been made! These amulets of Good Luck and Love, commemorate Glady's 21st birthday.
These gorgeous mini wax seal necklaces have all the detail of JdL's signature personalised wax seal necklaces but at a quarter of the size.
See Horse shoe seal ring (image provided here) to see Horse shoe seal that is also sold on this necklace.
Select center stone:
- Fire Opal (orange)
- Garnet (red - as seen in product image)
I have adopted elements of acrostic jewellery within this collection in order to conceal hidden messages within the pieces.
The stones 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, Ring or as Earrings and sold at my boticca.com shop.
The seal pendant moves freely along the chain and an additional jump ring is provided 2 inches from the end of each chosen length, to shorten if necessary.
The beauty of this piece is each wax seal is individually hand stamped therefore meaning that no two will ever look the same.
Please note ~ each piece is lovingly hand made to order, therefore a delivery time of two weeks is estimated.
All pieces come beautifully packaged in JdL signature vintage style packaging.
~ Width of the wax seal with top: 12mm
~ Height of the wax seal with top: 16mm
Price specified for silver, plated 18ct rose or yellow gold (please specify choice when you order)
