Recycled silver Crown coin
This beautiful large silver tree of life necklace has been meticulously handcrafted from a large flattened sterling silver one ounce full Crown coin, pre 1919. These lovely old pure silver coins are a fab priviledge to work with.
Discarded and uncollectible by numismatists due to excessive wear to surface details, these coins are just screaming out to be lovingly and sympathetically recycled. Rather than simply melting them down for the silver i prefer to invest time into creating a piece which is beautiful and ethical. I aim to not only create a contemporary, wearable design but also revive some of the original history, interest an beauty.
Each one of these trees is a complete pleasure to make, totally unique and completely individual. Once crafted the tree is finished with a simple mounted star, moon, leaf or heart hanging freely at the front fitting hand forged shepards crook safety catch.
The ‘off-cut’ surrounding silver coin is included with the necklace which connects the wearer beautifully with the trees former history and heritage.
