Flying pig earrings – Recycled silver shilling coin

These fabulously cheeky flying pig earrings are the perfect gift, and have been recycled from an English sterling silver shilling. These coins are unwanted by coin collectors due to wear marks from being used to buy and sell over one hundred years ago.

Firstly, I draw the design freehand drawn onto the sterling silver coin. Then I drill several holes and cut the sections delicately away. I file, smooth and finally polish the edges. The end result is a lovely, original, recycled pendant with a captivating history.

The flying piggies have been individually hand cut from the silver shilling with a traditional hand tools and techniques. Each one of the coin pendants I create is different, unusual and unique. This makes each coin a separate little masterpiece.

Handcrafted & Recycled in Cambridge, UK.

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.
