Saturn & Apollo the flying pigs
Flying pig earrings – Recycled silver shilling coin
These fabulously cheeky flying pig earrings are surely the perfect gift. They 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.
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 flying piggies have been individually hand cut from the silver shilling with a traditional hand tools and techniques
