Cute bird necklace – handmade, ethical and recycled from 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.
