As a graphic designer, the ampersand has always held a very special place in my heart. The variety of interpretations by font designers throughout history never cease to amaze!
Inspired by my love of vintage wax seals and typography, I've created this beautiful ampersand design from fine silver precious metal clay. This approximately 3/4" diameter, fine silver [.999] seal features our exclusive design on an organically shaped round, much like the melted wax spreads out beneath the pressure of the stamp.
Each charm is hand made using a stamp designed by Sandy, kiln fired, tumbled for strength, and polished. Because each charm is hand made one at a time, each one will have its own character.
The adjustable bangle is made from 14 gauge sterling silver. The inner diameter range is 2.5" to 3" and so it will fit most. We've found that by hanging the charms in the section of overlap, they are held in place on the top or bottom of your wrist...whichever you prefer. And the oval shape of the bangle keeps it from spinning on your wrist.
This is a great bracelet to add charms to! Check out our a la carte section and add a crystal or charm.
Your handcrafted piece arrives in a sweet purple recycled gift box.
Did you know that PMC [precious metal clay] is a recycled eco-friendly product? During photo processing, silver is recovered. That silver is mixed in with a binder making a clay-like material that can be worked, rolled, shaped/formed, stamped, etc. It's then fired, during which the binder burns off, leaving fine silver [99.9% pure].
