Recycled silver coins
This beautiful and whimsical necklace not only looks and feels lovely but is also filled with both meaning and humour. A true life amulet. Each cloud is lovingly handmade and up cycled from a silver shilling, 100 year old very worn and uncollectible coins.
The dark, moody thunder and lightning cloud represents both the huge, overwhelming power and force of nature and the challenges we encounter through out colourful lives. For me this cloud also represents the moods and thoughts i have occasionally! The sun, cut and carved from an old ‘thrupney-bit’ coin is carefully nestled behind another sterling silver shilling cloud, this one fluffy in nature, without rain or thunder. The third silver shilling cloud is releasing its burden and completing the cycle.
Although i have imbued the necklace with meaning this essence sits comfortably with the humour and fun had whilst wearing it 🙂 Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge.
Size : Longest stem approx 55 mm
Many of the necklace / pendant designs are complete. These designs have a sterling silver chain attached to the pendant from both sides. This design is perfect for looking in a mirror to fasten the necklace. It also makes a fabulous feature of the handmade hook catch (and star if chosen). The necklace length you choose includes the length of the actual pendant. Do not worry about the pendant dimensions we will take care of your order. Order the necklace length you would normally wear and the necklace you receive will sit in the perfect position..
