Recycled silver Shilling

The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life. It is this which inspired me to create this pendant which has been lovingly and meticulously hand cut from a recycled 100 year old silver shilling.

Each pendant is carefully handcrafted to order, using only these recycled silver coins. The coins themselves are the perfect medium for this beautiful design, inline with a love of nature using these coins is the perfect ethical and green solution. No new silver is destructively 'mined' and old, uncollectible pure silver coins are saved from the 'melting pot' of bullion merchants so some of their history and story live on.

Once the design has been freehand sketched on to the coin it is carefully hand cut and carved using traditional hand saws, chisels and files. This traditional process allows me to have a close connection to each piece, ensuring the end result is personal and unique.

The centre of the flower is a piece of 24ct gold inlayed into the silver. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.

Size : 24 mm diameter.
