Recycled silver Florin coin
This beautiful little silver tree pendant has been meticulously handcrafted from a flattened sterling silver Florin coin, pre 1919. These lovely old pure silver coins are fab to work with. Each one of these trees is a complete pleasure to create.
The design is freely sketched on to the surface of the flattened coin. This basic outline is traced meticulously with a jewellers saw. Here the details are embellished and refined. The fineness of the saw blade allows me to reveal details of leaves and branches i would find difficult to do with a pen. Once the tree is cut away from the confines of the original coin it is then carefully carved, engraved, filed and polished.
The ‘off-cut’ of the silver coin is included for your interest, forming a lovely connection between the beautiful new tree of life necklace and it original material use and history.
Every one is totally unique, individual and unique.
