The Spring Goddess
Beltane spring goddess jewellery handmade and recycled silver coins
It was an absolutely joy creating this Beltane necklace. I have created and recycled her from three sterling silver coins circa 1880’s, which is absolutely lovely silver to work with. Each Beltane Spring Goddess I create has special secret details on the reverse for the wearer to know and enjoy.
I use coins that are marred from 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. Then, I can transform them into a mystical Beltane goddess. By doing this, I retain the historical details, simultaneously adding depth, interest and intrigue to the design. I have individually hand-cut, carved and engraved the goddess from the silver coins with a traditional jewellers hand tools. As I hand-cut each coin individually to order, every one is completely unique and unusual. They look and feel special.
