As a girl in Alberta I dream't about travel and adventure in far flung places. As soon as I was able, I boarded a plane and spent a decade living and working all over Europe.
During this time I had many happy adventures in the great galleries, museums and antique markets that seemed to be around virtually every corner. It was on such an outing that I came across my first wax seals. Initially drawn to their symbolism and meaning, I quickly realized that each seal was also a miniature work of art in its own right.
Over time I built my own collection of many thousands of rare and beautiful antique seals which are now proudly displayed in my studio.
My other great joy in life is making Jewelry. While travelling in Northern Thailand on a whim, I took the opportunity to train with a master goldsmith. Putting aside the language barrier, I learned through demonstration and repetition, the basics of a skill I have endeavored to master ever since.
At the intersection of my passions - collecting wax seals and goldsmithing - is Plum and Posey.
The Seal Collection
Wax seals to me are impressions of another time, each a miniature work of art in its own right with its own intrinsic meaning and symbolism. I love to make jewelry using these fascinating designs and giving them a new lease of life, celebrating the amazing artists of the Georgian and Victorian eras, whose fine craftsmanship help make my work possible. These are just a few images from a collection of many thousands of seals.
Plum and Posey creates meaningful and timeless jewelry crafted from casts of antique wax seals. Each design is lovingly chosen from our treasured collection of many rare and beautiful seals, collected from around the world by our designer Adrinna Hardy.
While our customers always have such nice things to say about us, we feel truly lucky to have had so many fantastic people choose us over the past 10 years.
Plum&Posey was so accommodating, helpful and really great to speak with! The necklace arrived quickly and was beautiful, exactly how it’s described. Thank you! -A
So, so, so beautiful! Plum & Posey is my go-to for gorgeous wax seal jewelry and I am always getting compliments on the pieces. Love, love, love.. -MG
I ordered this particular medal to inspire me to not give up on my goals and it's a great reminder that I need to persist and persevere! I wear it every day-usually alone-but sometimes I layer it with other pieces too. It's so versatile and the feel of it is so smooth I often rub it like a good luck stone! Such a unique and gorgeous piece and the medal is heavy not flimsy. I will be buying more as gifts in the future! Also, the service was quick and the tracking was perfect. I'd give 10 stars if I could! -JK
This piece is gorgeous! I love the size as I was looking for something smaller so I could wear it with everything. I got the 20” chain and I’m glad I did cause I can layer it with shorter necklaces and longer. Best of both words. The chain is really nice too as it’s not too shiny, subtle and goes so well with the seal look. Very quick shipping and responses! Thank you! -MC
