This new hairy growler Birdsong bracelet is totally handmade from old uncollectible 100 year old coins, primarily florins and shillings. These beautiful coins are unwanted by coin collectors when elements become rubbed and marked. In most countries these old coins are made out of silver and this was the basis of their ‘face value’, worth. In the UK coins silver coloured coins minted before 1919 were made from 925 silver, known as sterling silver, an excellent quality silver to transform into jewellery with inherent untold stories, history and ethics.
These coins are a fantastic raw material to use as they have lovely details and history (most being well over 100 years old!). Having the opportunity to re-use them rather than collectors ‘scrapping’ them for the basic silver content is wonderful. Some links have added colour and contrast with small flower blossom elements created from old Victorian copper pennies and Georgian bronze thrupney bit coins.
