French Wax Seal, Honey Bee

£20.00

Channel your inner Cyrano and sign off your letters in 17th century style with a wax seal. We are offering some modern archetype symbols to represent you; take your pick for any occasion. Choose this bee as your emblem and sign off your letters with its symbolism of good luck and providence to your name. 

These handmade seals are made in France and not only are they attractive as objects, but they also create beautifully deep-set embossed images. We recommend using hard, Shellac-based wax for a more authentic, historical and crisp, sharp finish which can be purchased in a range of subtle tones here.

There are many Youtube videos illustrating how to use sealing wax. This should always done with care (and by adults only) as the wax can get very hot and should not be handled directly.
