A Farthing for sure..
Jenny wren coin jewellery – A hand cut and recycled Farthing coin
The wren symbolised wisdom and divinity and was the soul and symbol of the Oak King. A farthing (derived from the Anglo-Saxon ‘feorthing’, a ‘fourthling’ or fourth part) was a coin of England, Great Britain, and finally of the United Kingdom, worth one quarter of a penny, 1/960th of a pound sterling. Such coins were first minted in England in the 13th century, and continued to be used until 31 December 1960, when they ceased to be legal tender.
Most wrens are small and rather inconspicuous birds, except for their loud and often complex songs. Quite symbolic ! This lovely little coin looks even prettier when it has been hand cut, filed and polished. An old farthing coin given a fantastic new life as a pendant. A lovely, original pendant with a fantastic history and symbolism.
