Recycled silver Half Crown coins
This beautiful new Athena the goddess of wisdom, art and craft owl necklace has been meticulously handcrafted from a pair of 110 year old recycled solid silver Half Crown coins. Each one of these coins is obtained due to them not being of collectible quality. This is a real shame as they represent such a fasinating history. Rather than let them simply be ‘melted down’ to release the base value of the precious metal, i buy as many as i can to transform into lovely, wearable jewellery! I make sure each piece retains signs of its historical origins.
Firstly the coins are flattened to a desirable working area. Athena and her wings are carefully hand drawn onto the surface of the flattened silver coins. They are then carefully hand engraved and cut out by hand using a traditional jewellers piercing saw. Once the basic shape has been cut i meticulously and individually carve the details of each feather.
Athena’s presence when worn can be changed with the placing or removing of her owl head.
Each necklace ordered will be completely unique and individual. Be assured that it will be equally, if not more beautiful. The reverse of the necklace is also very special, the details of which will remain a secret for its wearer!
This is a gorgeous necklace to wear and absolutely perfect for studying in the library or wandering through the woods!
Size : Approx 55 mm * 35 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..
