Acorn and oak leaf earrings – handmade and recycled sterling silver shilling
I have used a lovely 100 year old silver shilling as the raw material. These stud type fitting earrings are sweet, lovely, unique, everyday wearable. I have freehand sketched the little acorns and oak leaf on to the silver shilling coin. I then carefully hand engrave the intricate details! I then chop them out with my favourite little jewellers saw.
Each set is completely unique, contemporary, ethical and beautiful. The very fact that they come as a set of three gives you the opportunity to wear a traditional pair of acorns or if you are in the mood, an asymmetrical presentation of oak leaf and acorn. They are presented complete with the sterling silver ‘off-cut’ which beautifully demonstrate the origins of the earrings and connect them to their interesting, recycled material history.
For a very limited time they are also available to order in 22ct gold, recycled from a worn 100 year old plus, but very beautiful solid gold coin.
