Swallow necklace – handcrafted and upcycled silver Two Shilling coin.
I have made this ‘free as a bird’ necklace from a pre-1920 sterling silver two shilling coin. The coin was carefully and forcefully flattened out in my usual manner. Once stretched out to the desired working shape i simply draw the design on with a fine nibbed marker pen. This rough sketch is then embellished and used as a approx guide line for my piercing saw work (the best bit! yipee). From here the pendant was filed, sanded, polished, and finished with some fine line intricate engraving.
Handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.
Size : Approx 38 mm * 38 mm
