Pyrrha Pendants and Rings!

Available at both Edmonton Tin Box locations are Pyrrha wax seal necklaces and rings!
Carpe Diem Ring
 Each Pyrrha piece is cast from 19th century wax seals salvaged by Vancouver jewelry designers Wade Papin and Danielle Wilmore. From their Vancouver studio - which happens to be a historical home turned jewelry making studio - Papin and Wilmore use reclaimed sterling silver to fashion each pendant and ring they create.
Integrity Pendant
Enclosed with each Pyrrha piece is a note explaining the unique symbolism behind each design, from hearts and locks to griffins and ravens. One of our favorite pieces is the "We Part to Meet Again" pendant featuring a scissor motif.

Perhaps the charm of Pyrrha is best summarized by the designers themselves in the quote, "jewelers traditionally try to make everything look perfect, but we like to show the maker’s hand. We celebrate the original cracks in the waxes.”
