70th Birthday – 1954 Farthing

Jenny wren farthing coin jewellery for that big birthday

1954 A Farthing for sure..

Birds’ love and birds’ song

Flying here and there,

Birds’ song and birds’ love

And you with gold for hair!

Birds’ song and birds’ love

Passing with the weather,

Men’s song and men’s love,

To love once and forever.

 

Men’s love and birds’ love,

And women’s love and men’s!

And you my wren with a crown of gold,

You my queen of the wrens!

You the queen of the wrens —

We’ll be birds of a feather,

I’ll be King of the Queen of the wrens,

And all in a nest together.

 

-John Gould Fletcher

70th Birthday gift – Jenny wren coin jewellery – A hand cut and recycled Farthing coin

The wren symbolises wisdom and divinity and was the soul and symbol of the Oak King. A farthing (derived from the Anglo-Saxon ‘feorthing’, a ‘fourthling’ or fourth part) was a coin of England, Great Britain, and finally of the United Kingdom, worth one quarter of a penny, 1/960th of a pound sterling. Such coins were first minted in England in the 13th century, and continued to be used until 31 December 1960, when they ceased to be legal tender.

Most wrens are small and rather inconspicuous birds, except for their loud and often complex songs. Quite symbolic ! This lovely little coin looks even prettier when it has been hand cut, filed and polished. An old farthing coin given a fantastic new life as a pendant. A lovely, original pendant with a fantastic history and symbolism.

Size : diameter 20 mm
