22ct Oak leaf & acorn
Gold Oak leaf & acorn necklace – handcrafted and recycled 22ct gold coin.
These wonderfully fine wee Oak leaf and acorn necklace charms are lovingly hand crafted from an 100 year old 22ct gold sovereign coin. The coins are selected due to it being worn and damaged after years of wear being ‘set’ within old, somewhat outdated ‘sovereign rings’.
The first step in transforming the gold coin is smoothing down the surface of the gold and preparing it for the oak leaf and acorn motifs. The folk designs are freehand drawn on to the gold and then carefully reiterated with a sharp scribe point so it is not lost when the pen outline inevitably rubs away.
Now the real fun begins! taking the plunge. Committing the design to the gold with tiny chisels with custom geometries first and ultra fine saw blades. After filing and polishing the little 22ct golden oak leaf and acorn are fitted onto a gold chain with the unique Hare-y-gr-Owl-er shepherds hook safety catch in gold. You have the option of choosing 9ct gold, 18ct gold or 22ct gold for the chain and catch. You are also welcome to select a 22ct gold star, moon or heart charm to hang from the custom gold hook.
On the reverse side of the hare you are invited to request a personal inscription of a special name, date or initials to be hand engraved.
