Leaping Hare Recycled Silver Coins
I have adopted this beautiful little necklace from recycled silver coins circa 1880’s. New little set of earrings and necklace based on the timeless connection between the heavens and earth. Once I sketch the design of your little Asterix rabbit onto the coin, I hand-cut and carve it. I use traditional hand saws, chisels and files, in order to give the piece the true English-traditional flare. This process allows me to have a close connection to each piece. Too, this leads to the added bonus of each piece being completely and organically unique.
I handcraft each necklace; you are welcome to select a name or initials to be engraved on the reverse of the rabbit. A silver moon cut from a silver sixpence is hanging beautifully from one side of the necklace and you can choose a matching silver star to hang from the Hairy Growler signature shepherd’s crook catch or a contrasting golden bronze or reddish copper star.
If you like this necklace, why not look at the Prince of Rabbits, El-ahrairah?
