Introducing the Century Insignia.
When a classic is updated, it is not really to improve upon, but to honor a design that has stood the test of time. So, new for this spring, we bring you the Century Insignia, a brass accented version of our beloved sterling silver Square Insignia, first introduced in 2001.
Initials are the life giving sap that runs through our family tree here at Waxing Poetic. Meant for everyday, delicious and sticky (meaning, we never take them off!). And we can’t imagine life without them. These initials are truly felt and gifted as much today as they have been since we started, and have always been considered one of our beloved “must-have” pieces.
The original idea of the Square Insignia was not about sparkle, it was about “spark:” the notion of celebrating our imperfections, and each other. It gave us permission to go deeper into what was waiting to be revealed.. to trust our values of authenticity, artfulness, old-school methods, communication and poetic exploration with as much abandon as we were brave enough to bring to the craft of jewelry making and the process of building something lasting.
So, we return once again to our old, wise friend, and pick up where we left off, in an entirely new conversation. Cast and finished by hand, deceptively simple but ever more intricate as time goes on. Just as a good friendship should be.
