Rather than let them simply be melted down for the silver content I absolutely love coming up with designs and ideas to transform them into something desirable. By doing this the historical details are retained, simultaneously adding depth, interest and intrigue to the design.

The pair of Calaca’s have been individually hand cut, carved and engraved from the silver shilling with a traditional jewellers hand tools.  Each pair is completely unique, contemporary, ethical and beautiful. They are presented complete with a sterling silver ‘off-cut’ which beautifully demonstrate the origins of the skulls and connect them to their interesting, recycled material history.
