Autumn tree earrings – handmade and Recycled sterling silver shillings
These wonderful silver springtime tree of life earrings are inspired by March walks in the local woodlands. I have created them using only traditional methods and tools. Each pair the result of time, patience and green principles.
Old English silver shilling coins are used. These coins become uncollectible due to wear and use over 100 years of trade. Important details to a collector are missing, rendering the coin ‘scrap’. This allows the opportunity to create new, contemporary offerings, without consuming newly processed silver.
The mining and processing of precious metals is extremely destructive to the environment. An unseen and little talked about unethical industry. If you would like a small inscription on the reverse of the pendant please feel free to leave some details, e.g date, initials, ‘with love’, etc.
The reverse of the earrings can be engraved with personal initials upon request. They are presented on sterling silver ear wires. Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.
Sizes : Approx 24 mm * 15 mm
