This pendant is made using an antique wax seal from the Napoleonic Era (the early-to-mid 1800s). The seal is part of an etuie set that holds more than 50 different seals with inspiring messages.
Pictured above a field of oat reeds are the words “Telle Est Ma Destinée”, translated to “This is My Destiny”. The wind chooses the direction in which the oat reeds sway – it’s their destiny to sway with the wind. It’s a great personal talisman for anyone who feels that they’re on the path of their destiny. Another way of wording it would be “Que sera, sera” or “Whatever will be, will be”.
This pendant is made out of pure copper, and hand stamped with an antique wax seal.
Each pendant is stamped, sanded, polished and oxidized for an antique look. Because they are hand-stamped individually and made to order, these pendants are truly unique, and no two pendants are the same (unlike pendants cast from a mold).
Instead of drilling a hole through the copper and thereby ruining the beautiful imprint of the seal, the pendent is set with a copper bail and jumpring. These extra details make this piece heirloom quality, and a timeless treasure that can be passed down through generations.
DIMENSIONS: The pendant is slightly larger than 3/4″ across.
This listing is for the PENDANT ONLY and does not necessarily include a chain.
