Badger and the Moon

Badger and the Moon

The campfire flickers in the deepest night

Sparks fly up to paint the sky with splashes of flame

The cold dark yawns above the tree branches

Threatening to swallow the small patch of light whole

The moon is a glinting eye, silver and all-seeing.

In the brambles, a gentle badger creeps

Paws silent against dead leaves

The damp earth a rich brown coating over stone and root

Albion’s spirit soars high over the woods,

Uncaged for that cold, still moment.

Badger and the Moon

Badger and Moon earrings – handmade and recycled sterling silver shilling coin.

I recycled these little badger and moon stud earrings from an English sterling silver shilling coin. These coins are unwanted by coin collectors due to wear marks from being used to buy and sell over one hundred years ago. Rather than let them be melted down for the silver, I transform them into something desirable. By doing this, I help retain the historical details and the original aesthetic is maintained.

I individually hand cut, carve and engrave the badgers and the moon from a silver shilling with a traditional jewellers hand tools. The unusual triplet of earrings allows you to wear a traditional pair, or asymmetrical variation of badger and moon. It also means you have a spare in case the worst occurs!

Each set is completely unique, contemporary, ethical and beautiful. They are presented complete with a sterling silver ‘off-cut’. This demonstrates the origins of the badgers and connects them to their unique, recycled material history. Alternatively, you can check out some Raven Moon stud earrings, or branch out with some Rowan leaf stud earrings.

    The tiny details on their fur and little faces as they gaze up to the full moon are wonderful. Everything Les makes is a work of art with a life of its own and my daughters were thrilled. Very practical too as the stud backings are very secure.

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.
