Recycled silver sixpence
Ever since reading Moby Dick i have had a love and interest in whales, so having the opportunity to creat lovely little whale amulates is a real pleasure.
Each one of these pendants is handmade from an old pre 1920’s sterling silver sixpence coin. Using a marker pen a quick inspired sketch is dropped on to the surface of the small silver coin. I then meticulously carve away the stylised Blue whale using a traditional jewellers saw. Once the details are cut the pendant is given a polish, either matte (shown) or shiny (also looks fab).
As I handcut each coin individually to order every one is completely unique and unusual. They look and feel special.
Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.
Size : Approx 19 mm diameter
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..
