The Canadian design duo that is Wade Papin and Danielle Wilmore have assembled the Pyrrha jewelry label. The company specializes in the production of intricate, handmade wax seal pieces, many of which are modeled after 19th century stationery practices.
Papin and Wilmore draw their inspiration from a box of antiquated seals that the pair came across while at a public estate sale. The name Pyrrha descends from Greek mythology, a choice informed by the brand's love of history.
The casting process that lies behind the necklaces, bracelets and rings was developed by Papin and Wilmore through lengthy processes of trial and error. They eventually developed their distinctive look, instantly recognizable for anyone even remotely familiar with the brand.
