Pyrrha Talisman Jewelry is produced from reclaimed Sterling Silver.

"The stones Deucalion had thrown were formed as men, 
Those from Pyrrha’s hand reshaped as women.

Hence we are hard, we children of the earth, 
And in our lives of toil we prove our birth."
Inspired by the idea of metamorphosis, the company's founders took the name Pyrrha from the Greek myth of Pyrrha & Deucalion. The name describes not only a physical change - transforming reclaimed metals into jewelry - but also represents a positive transformation of character and inspiration for the wearer. 

Inspiration for Pyrrha's signature talisman jewelry came to the company's founders at an estate sale while digging through a box of old letters adorned with dirty, cracked, and fragile wax seals. Rich in heraldic symbolism, something about the antiquity of the seals made their sentiment feel more genuine.

Fascinated by the art of heraldry and compelled to preserve their rough-hewn history, Pyrrha uses these seals to make talisman jewelry that conveys an inspirational message. They celebrate the cracks and flaws in the wax, choosing to preserve a handmade feel. 

Pyrrha felt that the timing couldn’t be better given the return of old world craftsmanship and tradition. Their design direction is largely a reaction to the proliferation of factory made, mass produced jewelry that is so common today. Everything seems to be cranked out at a staggering pace and then left for dead. Because we live in such a throwaway society, Pyrrha's creators feel it’s necessary to create things that can be treasured.
