The Chi Rho Cross
Chi Rho necklace – handmade and recycled silver 100 year old sterling silver Florin
A sign of salvation, the first two letters of Christo XPΙΣΤΟΣ. XP is one of the earliest Christogram symbols.
I lovingly craft each Chi Rho Christogram cross pendant from a 100 year old silver Florin. The coins themselves are the perfect medium for this beautiful design, inline with a love of nature using these coins is the perfect ethical and green solution. No new silver is destructively ‘mined’ and old, uncollectible pure silver coins are saved from the ‘melting pot’ of bullion merchants. This protects the history and ensures their stories live on.
Once the design is freehand sketched on to the coin, it is hand cut and carved using traditional hand saws, chisels and files. This traditional process allows me to have a close connection to each piece. This also gives the added bonus of each piece being completely unique. Each cross is individually handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.
Size : Approx 26 mm * 18 mm
