Recycled silver Shillings and Sixpences
Snowflakes are a particular source of interest and inspiration. The apparent uniqueness, beautiful structure and atmosphere creating capabilities are just a few of the qualities i appreciate. Obviously the ‘atmosphere creating’ capabilities are especially important. Waking up to the muffled silence and natures blanket covering is always a special moment. These little winter amulet elements are completely handcrafted and recycled from old sterling silver threepences, sixpences and shillings, all dated pre 1900’s.
Each piece in the cluster is meticulously sketched, carved, engraved, drilled, hand pierced, filed and eventually matte polished.
Presented on a lovely silver chain with a handmade ‘shepards crook’ safety catch.
size : longest piece, the snow filled cloud is approx : 50 mm * 26 mm
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..
