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 Heart Wax Seal with a precious stone grain set in center on a beautiful wire ring.
The much requested for mini hand stamped wax seals have now been made! These amulets of 'Good Luck' as represented by the Horse Shoe symbol and 'Love' as represented by the Shooting Heart Seal symbol, commemorate Glady's 21st birthday.
Select center stone:
- Fire Opal (orange)
- Garnet (red)
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, Pin or as Earrings and sold at my boticca.com shop.
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
