Recycled silver shillings
A beautiful little necklace combination of pixie and faerie pendants delicately handcrafted from recycled silver shillings. Both are individually made in my workshop using only traditional hand tools. The designs are freehand sketched onto the surface of the flattened silver coins. These designs are them embellished with hand gravers sharpened to a razor point. The next stage involves some serious cutting with a super fine jewellers saw. Finally a stylistic crescent moon and star are cut from the remainder of the silver shillings, upon which initials can be placed.
Size : Each wee pixie / faerie approx 22 mm – 25 mm tall.
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..
