Ethical Jewellery Designer

Details

Recycled 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. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.

Size : Approx 24 mm diameter.

Beautifully executed, adorable squirrel with perfect features shown in a natural pose eating an acorn - makes a very attractive subject for a pendant. I like the detail of the tiniest piece of the squirrel's ear and the tip of the tail encroaching into the rim of the shilling - beautiful. The craftsmanship is exquisite. Using his gift of knowing the right amount of detail to give life to the piece, the work is uncluttered and visually appealing. The extra acorn, made from an old threepenny piece, attached to the superbly crafted clasp is hallmark feature for Mr. Growler.
