Intaglio Necklaces (Brass)

$45.00
About Details

More and more, the jewelry I collect and wear is less decorative and more talismanic.  In this series of carved pendants, I've called upon classic symbols and Victorian sentiments to make a modern series of intaglios.  Note that the words read in reverse; this is so they can be pressed into hot wax to seal a letter.  Not that you'd do that, really, but this is what intaglios were originally used for.  These pre-postage-stamp messages were often infused with humor, beauty, and love, and we've tried to do the same.
