This mythology jewelry wax seal pendant features a Leda and the Swan pendant with a scene depicting Zeus pertaining to Leda as a swan. The image has been made by utilizing a very classic Tassie intaglio pushed into a rare-earth element clay. The valuable metal clay is then fired in the kiln and burns the binders from the clay leaving pure.999 silver.
After the piece comes out of the kiln, I polish and then oxidize the silver, then it is polished once more to specify the images. It is marked with my makers mark and.999 FS, the fine silver mark on the back.
It measures simply shy of an inch throughout and just shy of an inch from the top of the bail to the bottom.
The cord is leather with a sterling silver clasp – you choose the length.
Leda and the Swan is a theme from Greek folklore, where Zeus concerned Leda through a swan. According to later on Greek mythology, Leda bore Helen and Polydeuces, kids of Zeus while at the same time bearing Castor and Clytemnestra, children of her husband Tyndareus, the King of Sparta. As the story goes, Zeus took the form of a swan and raped or seduced Leda on the same night she slept with her other half, King Tyndareus. In some versions, she laid 2 eggs from which the kids hatched.
