Thistle of Scotland Necklace by Skölland Jewelry
This Scottish Thistle wax seal necklace would make a great gift for your friend or sweetheart, it can also be a beautiful reminder of your own Scottish heritage. Being the national flower for Scotland, and a prominent symbol for over 500 years. This flower represents bravery, courage, and loyalty in the face of treachery. Read on to discover the meaning behind this vintage-styled piece.
I acquired the old brass wax seal used to make this pendant back in 2015. I once used it to seal letters, now it is used to craft jewelry in my home studio. I wanted to reflect the age of the wax seal, into this piece so I took care to add extra details to the piece. The back features an old-time glass texture that was applied by hand, and antiquing on the front paying homage to the age of the wax seal and the history of the Scottish thistle. Each of these pendants is small-batch made, and entirely handcrafted. Just as they would have been hundreds of years ago. Creating an heirloom piece you can wear for years to come, and pass it on to someone special.
Perfect for an outlander fan, best friend, mom, or your sister.
