Recycled silver shillings
A fabulous little selection of sterling silver bird and blossom necklaces hand cut from Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian silver shillings. Each one is completely unique and hand cut, carved and meticulously deep engraved using traditional hand tools. Initially the individual design is freehand sketched onto the surface of the ‘flattened’ shilling. This rough outline is then followed, embellished and developed until the lovely necklaces you see materialise!
Obviously the ‘off-cut’ of the remaining silver coin is packed with the silver tweet for your interest and to keep its history, origin and story alive. Each birdy scene comes complete with a lovely sterling silver necklace finished with a handmade ‘shepards crook’ safety catch and accompanying wee charm.
A set of three make the perfect presents for your bridesmaids, daughters or lovely close friends. Or your daughters / bridesmaids who are lovely close friends! Or even your daughters who are your bridesmaids, that works too. Exhausting. or just buy one for yourself 😉
If more than one necklace is chosen please drop me a message at after ordering to let me know your choice of necklace lengths and style / type of accompanying charms.

    Nature preserved for all time

    Delicate silver carvings bring to mind some of the beautiful pieces worn by a great aunt on her navy blue frocks. Timeless birds and greenery that transcends time. I love all your work. You have a magnificent eye for detail and I would love to be able to show America your work.u8dfa

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..
