Recycled silver sixpence coins.
Above the gloomy clouds the stars are twinkling. These lovely, delicately created earrings are made from sterling silver sixpence coins. Thus, not only are they recycled, but they have a fantastic history and story. Passed from person to person, spent, traded, saved, given as a gift for a hundred years. Now out of circulation, these coins are so worn and have so many ‘imperfections’ they are un-collectable. Bought and donated as scrap, these coins are transformed and re-born as cute silver jewellery.
The techniques used to create the earrings are simple and traditional. The clouds are created from silver sixpences, whilst the stars are handcut from old English copper pennies and brass ‘thrupney-bits’.
Handmade and completely recycled in Cambridge, UK. Complete with the finest sterling silver earwires.
Size : Approx 50 mm * 23 mm
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..
