Tiny Greyhound Wax Seal Earrings

A pair of tiny wax seal greyhound earrings made using an antique Victorian era antique wax seal from the mid 1800's. The Greyhound is said to denote majesty, courage, vigilance, swiftness and loyalty, and were also emblematic of nobility. Greyhounds are one of the oldest breeds of dogs, and appear in art and literature throughout history. The breed was developed nearly 5,000 years ago in Egypt. Known in England before the 9th century, the Greyhound was bred and raised by the aristocracy. For 700 years it was illegal under English law for a commoner to own a Greyhound. In heraldry, greyhounds symbolize courage, vigilance, and loyalty.

Process

Petite wax seal greyhounds are handmade of Sterling Silver, they are lightweight and small, made to dangle just below the earlobe on sterling silver earwires and are dainty, delicate and beautiful for an understated look. They are made using a vintage wax seal and have been oxidized, buffed and polished to bring out the contrast. Earring backs are included to keep them snug and in place.
