For the little bird in your life…
Bird coin necklace – handmade and recycled Half Penny jewellery
Inspired by a friendly little daily visitor to my garden, sitting on a branch in a tree opposite my workshop window. I decided that the sketch would really come to life if I carefully hand cut the design out of an old English half penny coin.
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 pendant with a captivating history. Each one of the coin pendants I create is different, unusual and unique.
Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.
