Recycled silver Crown coins
This fabulous new hunting owl necklace has been meticulously handcrafted from three large 120 year old recycled solid silver Crown coins. Each one of these coins is obtained due to them not being of collectible quality. This is a real shame as they represent such a fasinating history. Rather than let them simply be ‘melted down’ to release the base value of the precious metal, i buy as many as i can to transform into lovely, wearable jewellery! I make sure each piece retains signs of its historical origins.
Firstly the coins are fused together to give me the perfect, large working area. The owl has been carefully hand drawn onto the surface of the flattened silver coins. It is then cut out by hand using a traditional jewellers piercing saw. Once the basic shape has been cut i meticulously and individually carve the details of each feather. Each necklace ordered will be completely unique and individual. Be assured that it will be equally, if not more beautiful. The reverse of the necklace is also very special, the details of which will remain a secret for its wearer! I’m not telling 🙂
The story of Blodeuwedd is never far from my consciousness always floating around in my mind.
The Mabinogion are part of the earliest peoples prose in Britain, spoken and told, passed from generation to generation. The importance of this oral tradition has never been so important now as when our ancestors experienced the arrival of Roman Imperialism and their scribes.
When authoritarian technocrats arrive and take control of the narrative, history can be changed quite easily over the course of a few generations. With the help of “look its written in the book so it must be true” its not difficult for the wisdom of the ages and ancestors to be lost and replaced by more convenient storylines that favour the current control grid.
Now we are in an era of digital text, even easier to change without record of it being any other to new generations. The oral tradition works beautifully as each time it is told the message is being told by an elder to its own flesh and blood. Truth and love packaged in a memorable legend that will stand the test of time.
I always find it interesting that our true ancestors ‘mythology’ passed down is filled will wisdom ready to be unpacked and understood whilst ‘official history’ is filled with very little empowerment of the divine self rather telling a story in which we are thankful to our ‘leaders’. Try pulling this storyline with aboriginal, tree roots peoples of any country!
As Napoleon is quoted to have once said “ ‘What is ‘History’ ?, but a fable agreed upon ?” – generally agreed upon by the winners of a hideous bloody battle.
History -his story defo not her story.
Made from flowers of the woodland and the oak being the wisest of all trees, Blodeuwedd like us is part of and connected to the Earth. Her spirit and divine energy are profound. Through her experience of existence she accepts herself and turns against what other people who seek to control her want her to be. From flower maiden to self actualised, independent critical thought – wise.
Blodeuwedd Silent wings, wise Devine Gnosis, knowing A Goddess. This is a gorgeous necklace to wear and absolutely perfect for partying or wandering through the woods!

    Simply breathtaking

    I have rarely seen something so evocative in a hand-made piece of jewelry. If I were wealthy enough to collect such things, this would be at the tip of my list. Simply gorgeous.

    We must have great taste

    …. as daughter and I always seem to find the most beautiful, most expensive pieces. Hoping that we can split the cost and attempt to share a magnificent owl in the future!

    Simply stunning

    I’ve come back to this piece over and over again. It is the most eye catching jewellery. Always think it is a piece of art more than jewellery. Whoever gets to wear this amazing necklace is very lucky indeed. Too expensive at the moment, maybe some day.

    Most Beautifully Unique Jewellery in Existance

    I ordered the Blodeuwedd necklace for my girlfriend’s 21 birthday and she couldn’t have been happier. The attention to detail is utterly breathtaking and beats anything offered by designer high street jewellery brands. It is completely unique to my girlfriend and is in her words “the best present I’ve ever had”. I will definitely be returning to Hairy Growler in the future.
