Kingsy & Queensie
Two little lovebirds necklace – handcrafted & recycled sterling silver coins
This is literally the most versatile necklace I have ever made! Firstly; is this a gift or a guilty pleasure. Next, the King bird or the Queen bird… or both?! The you can have the added bonus of a sweetheart with a personalised initial. Will it be your initial to remind the receiver of their generous friend, or will it be theirs, because this little lovebirds necklace is a good enough reminder anyway… With any choice, this necklace is a gorgeous reminder of one of the most important things in life: keep love close at hand and close in heart.
This little necklace is made out of recycled silver coins, hand cut and carved with centuries-old techniques and using traditional tools worthy of such a ceremony. Discarded and uncollectible by numismatists (coin collectors), the coins I use for this necklace are just screaming out to be recycled. I invest time into creating a piece which is beautiful and ethical. My aim is to not only create a contemporary, wearable design but also revive some of the original history. I preserve these coins for a future generation. Firstly, I draw the design freehand drawn onto the sterling silver coin. Then I drill several holes and cut the sections delicately away. I file, smooth and finally polish the edges. The end result is a lovely, original, recycled lovebirds necklace with a captivating history.
Each one of the wee birds jewellery I create is different, unusual and unique. Be assured that if you order one it will look equally as lovely!
