Intaglio Necklace (Friendship - Boat)
This product is currently sold out.
In this series of carved pendants, classic symbols and Victorian sentiments were used 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.
Made by hand in our Brooklyn studio.
Measurements: Intaglios are about 1/2" tall. Chains are 22" long.
