From their Vancouver studio, jewelry designers Wade Papin and Danielle Wilmore handcraft the heraldic talismans cast from 18th and 19th century wax seals that have become the Pyrrha signature. "Jewelers traditionally try to make everything look perfect," say Danielle and Wade, "but we like to show the maker's hand. We celebrate the original cracks in the waxes."
The pair designed the Pyrrha Talisman collection after they came across a box of 19th century wax seals. "Making jewelry out of them was inspired by a desire to give the fragile waxes new life and permanence," say Danielle and Wade.
