Recycled silver coins
I have made these lovely leaping hare cufflinks by recycling two English sterling silver shillings and two silver three pences. These coins are unwanted by coin collectors due to wear marks from being used to buy and sell over one hundred years ago.
Rather than let them simply be melted down for the silver content I absolutely love coming up with designs and ideas to transform them into something desirable. By doing this the historical details are retained, simultaneously adding depth, interest and intrigue to the design.
These gorgeous little leaping hares are individually hand cut with a traditional jewellers saw from the sterling shillings. The opposite side of the cufflink is the sterling silver three pence. The cufflink chain is also completely recycled sterling silver made at the workshop.
