1963 The sixpence Tree of Life
1963 Tree of your life necklace – handmade, ethical, repurposed sixpence perfect 60th Birthday celebration gift
This beautiful little tree of the world and life sixpence pendant has been lovingly and hand cut with enormous care from an ‘out of circulation’ 1963 sixpence. Inspired by the trees that encapsulate and capture out lives, family and togetherness.
Each pendant is carefully handcrafted to order, using only these recycled sixpence 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’, rather, old, uncollectible coins are saved from the ‘melting pot’ 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 19 mm diameter.
