"Everything about antiques and jewelry suits me perfectly. I was a total rock hound as a kid and I studied archaeology in college. I love material culture and the Cachet Collection - a captivating range of reversible, antique wax seal jewelry - is my serenade to Victoriana.
 

The Victorians used wax seals to stamp all of their correspondence and the choice of which seal to use was intensely personal and powerful. The seal was the first thing that the reader would see - a preview to what was written inside. News of a death required a somber seal with a phrase of comfort, a "billet doux" to a lover something tender or playful, and a business contract perhaps just stamped with the day of the week. 

With the Cachet Collection, antique wax seals become wearable "objets d'art": small reminders of the big sentiments that rule us all. The messages and images on the seals are timeless, carrying just as much meaning for the modern woman as they did for the Victorians almost two centuries ago. Cast from original artifacts, hand-finished with love, and designed to be worn every day."
