Knowledge & Wisdom

Barn Owl Earrings

Barn owl earrings – handcrafted and recycled sterling silver shilling.

These very nice little barn owls (which i’ve named for you! ‘Knowledge and Wisdom’) and moon stud type fitting earrings have been recycled 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 simply be melted down for the silver content I absolutely love coming up with designs and ideas to transform them into something desirable. By doing this the historical details are retained, simultaneously adding depth, interest and intrigue to the design.

The pair of barn owls and moon have been individually hand cut, carved and engraved from the silver shilling with a traditional jewellers hand tools.  The unusual triplet of earrings allows you to wear a traditional pair of beautiful owls or an individual, original asymmetrical variation of barn owl 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’ which beautifully demonstrate the origins of the owls and connect them to their interesting, recycled material history.

sizes approx : 14mm * 6 mm
