Ethical Jewellery Designer


Recycled Shilling

The Shilling was a denomination of British money worth the equivalent of a twentieth of a pound or at the time twelve pence! It was made from silver from 1503 right up until 1947. This beautiful 'out of circulation' half crown coin provides the perfect size raw material to create a lovely intricate and wearable pendant. The coin design is carefully and meticulously followed with a traditional jewellers saw. Every single letter is cut around, left prominent and standing strong! Each one is completely unique and special and will last many generations as a family heirloom.

A lovely, original, recycled coin pendant with a fantastic history, perfect unusual birthday present. Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.

We may even have a particular year that might be relevant to you or someone close.

Size : Approx 23 mm diameter

Many of the necklace / pendant designs are complete. These designs have a sterling silver chain attached to the pendant from both sides. This design is perfect for looking in a mirror to fasten the necklace. It also makes a fabulous feature of the handmade hook catch (and star if chosen).

The necklace length you choose includes the length of the actual pendant. Do not worry about the pendant dimensions we will take care of your order. Order the necklace length you would normally wear and the necklace you receive will sit in the perfect position.
