Bee Lucky Sixpence

Bee necklace – handmade and recycled silver sixpence coin jewellery.

Without bees there would be no flowering plants, and without flowering plants there would be no bees. Without bees biodiversity would not be so great!

“BEES ARE GOOD FOR TREES AND TREES ARE GOOD FOR BEES.” Bees and trees belong together. Given the choice, wild honeybees chose nesting places in trees rather than in an open landscape. Most often the honeybees prefer to build their combs or nests high in trees instead of close to the ground, but bees nests can be found everywhere in a tree. When enough bees are present in a forest, they provide a better pollination that leads to improved regeneration of trees and conservation of the forest’s biodiversity.

Each one of these pendants is handmade from a 100 year old solid silver sixpence coin. Using a marker pen a quick inspired sketch is dropped on to the surface of the sixpence. I then meticulously carve away the design with a traditional hand engraving tool and cut details using a traditional jewellers saw. Once the details are cut the pendant is given an extremely bright polishing which really brings the coin to life.

As I hand cut each coin individually to order every one is completely unique and unusual. They look and feel special.

Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.

Size : 19 mm diameter

    Can’t wait

    I’ve ordered this and can’t wait to receive it. Got the email saying it was soon going to be made and so excited .
    The site was recommended by a friend and I just wanted something unique to celebrate 25 years in my job and this little silver Bee was perfect.
    Will look forward to wearing it every day 🙂

    Bee lucky – I feel very lucky!

    I am a total fanatic about bees and of hairy growler jewellery and I was not disappointed with my purchase. It is so detailed and unique, the workmanship is quite special and I get lots of really great comments from people about it whenever I wear it. It is one of the nicest things I have in my collection and can’t wait to buy another piece from HG.

    Totally amazing

    I love my Bee lucky sixpence as it is unique and really well detailed. The fact that HG jewellery is made from recycled and reclaimed resource means it is ethical and sustainable and that is important to me. I would highly recommend any of these hand crafted items as that workmanship is awesome. Thanks again for making this for me. Five stars every time.

    Simply wonderful

    Great piece, the detail on such a small coin is amazing. Choice of chain and charm add to individual nature of the necklace. Haven’t taken it off since it arrived! Third item purchased for the Growler, love them all, although the simple nature of this design allows for everyday wear.
