Escape from Efrafa….

Escape from Efrafa….

The feeling of life is singing in my veins

I run and run, never falling out of step

I let my soul join my friends, my fellows

Let it dance with theirs, our energies glowing,

Flowing to create a vibrant dandelion puff of spinning white

People think I’m strange.


But I will take all of that, just to see this,

Just to be able to connect with the people I love most

I will take all of that and more

To be able to survive looking at their souls

In all of their glory

Even Prince El-Ahrairah couldn’t have seen such magic

So I take all of the slurs

All the comments, even from Hazel

Wouldn’t you?

Escape from Efrafa

Recycled sterling silver Crown and sixpences

The book Watership Down inspired me to create this piece. This silver rabbit necklace is showing the scene when the rabbits are escaping from Efrafa and heading towards the forest. I have hand cut each wee bunny from a recycled sterling silver Victorian or Georgian sixpence coin. I have pierced the background swirls and stars from a large flattened silver Crown coin circa 1850s as well. Discarded and uncollectible by numismatists, these coins are just screaming out to be recycled. I invest time into creating a piece which is beautiful and ethical. My aim is to not only create a contemporary, wearable design but also revive some of the original history. I preserve these coins for a future generation.

This little colony of nine rabbits are racing towards the beautiful Peridot stone. Usually, I finish this silver rabbit necklace with a hand wrought ‘shepherd’s crook’ safety catch with accompanying star. You are welcome to choose a particular necklace length, type of charm at the catch, etc. I’ve also added a secret little extra… you can also wear this necklace with the reverse showing, which depicts a lovely surprise nighttime scene of swirls and stars…

Handcrafted & Recycled in Cambridge.
Size : Approx 80 mm * 35 mm

    Overwhelmingly stunning!

    I treated myself to this as a reward for stopping smoking! A huge purchase but i know i deserved it. (it would have been nicer to have been bought it as a present, but that is beside the point!) I am completely in love with it! What the picture doesn’t show or describe is that the reverse is equally as beautiful with gorgeous swirls and stars. If the Watership Down hare vision wasn’t so utterly beautiful i would definitely wear it with stars facing outwards! Bracelet next……eek guess i’m going to have to give up drinking! no make that sex. 😉

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..
