Recycled Irish hare coin The three-pence coin was a pre-decimal coin worth 1/80 of an Irish pound. The Irish name (leath reul) literally meant "half reul", the reul being a sixpence coin worth the same as the Spanish real.

Each one of these lovely Irish Hare three pence pieces is totally hand cut and recycled, green in more ways than one! Again these cute little coins make perfect little lucky charms, pendants and key ring charms.

If you decide upon a silver chain you are also welcome to choose a little charm to hang from the hand wrought silver 'hairy growler' safety hook. These are also 100 % hand made and recycled from silver, bronze and copper coins.

Size : Approx diameter 18 mm

Love, love, LOVE my hare knecklace. It is stunningly beautiful and I could not be happier. Owning a piece of jewellery from Les has been something on my wish list for years, ever since we first saw him at Glastonbury in 2010/11. It is perfect
Perfect size, lovely work Review by Steve

Foolish me - I had assumed that the coin was like an old penny (closer in size to a modern 2p) when in fact it’s more like a modern 1p in size... and all the better and more impressive a piece of work as a result. Chain and clasp match it perfectly. My wife was thrilled :)

Great service - I ordered an Irish farthing (Hare) for my wife, and she was knocked out by it (as was I actually)
H.G. offer lovely pieces, good communications, and a high quality finished product.
Please give them some business and see for yourself!

Dear Les,
My husband sent me your message so I could send feedback.
I absolutely love my hare pendent which I received as a Christmas gift . I also received a pair of dangle earings with stars cut out these were from my daughter. I have admired your work since I watched a YouTube of you carving out a tree of life. You are very skilful and create such beautiful items. Thank you so much . I wish you a very happy 2017 with continuing success with your unique creations.
Warm regards
Su Robinson

As for the necklace itself - looks excellent and was just as I had expected, and the recipient was delighted!
I ordered this on the strength of seeing a friend's jewellery, and she is keen to order more - all in all, a great product and excellent service.

I was delighted with the necklace I bought for a very special friend, who in turn was extremely pleased to receive it. Beautifully packaged and as always lovely to own. I had been given a farthing with my year of birth on, by my son and daughter-in-law. They had purchased their wedding rings earlier this year too.

Perfect gift Review by Kenneth
Posted on 25/01/2015
My wife is Irish, she likes hares and loves recycling so was very pleased with the pendant made from an Irish threepenny coin. Carefully crafted and well presented, it's now one of her favourite pieces.
I thought later it would be good to have the option of choosing a coin from a specific year, if available, but I didn't ask and it's still a great gift.

Why 4 out of 5??? Review by John
Posted on 15/10/2014
I've purchased this item as a christmas gift for my wife. As such i unfortunately can't give this item a 5 star rating as its not yet been worn and wont be for some time to come. However i've given it a 4 star as the piece looks amazing and im very happy with it. It is slightly smaller than I imagined, but thats more to do with me being a man and picturing things larger than they are. I would certainly recommend the product and will be looking to order from the site again in the future (no doubt my wife will be after christmas aswell).
My hare arrived :( Review by Bartlebee Scrivenor
Posted on 29/08/2014
I am so disappointed with it. It's so much smaller than I expected - my fault for not checking the size properly. The silver chain doesn't go well with it at all and I can't wait to find a better chain for it which is very annoying as I paid extra for a 24" chain.

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).

Small size : approx 185 mm
