Recycled silver Shilling

I have decided to hand cut each one of these sweet messenger bird pendants from only the finest antique sterling silver lucky shillings.

Inspired by a friendly little daily visitor to my garden, a robin sitting on a branch in a tree opposite my workshop window. I initially needed to create a special gift for a special teacher. Eventually I decided that this sketch would really come to life if i carefully hand cut the design out of an old English shilling coin. The design is freehand drawn onto the silver shilling. Several holes are drilled and the sections are delicately cut away. The edges are filed and the details are carefully hand carved, smoothed and finally polished. The end result is a lovely, original, recycled pendant with a fantastic history.

You are welcome to specify a small person message for your messenger bird to tweet to its recipient!

The messenger bird shilling is presented on either a fab sterling silver necklace with a handmade shepards crook safety catch and accompanying wee star, moon or heart... or a simple but lovely adjustable braided cotton necklace cord.

100% Handcrafted & Recycled in Cambridge, UK

I love my new necklace I've had so many comments about it, not just the charm itself but the clasp. It will always be very special to me.

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.
