Recycled silver Sixpence
I have decided to hand cut each one of these lucky bird pendants from only the finest antique sterling silver lucky sixpences.
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 sixpence coin. The design is freehand drawn onto the silver sixpence. Several holes are drilled and the sections are delicately cut away. The bird is then carefully hand engraved with delicate feather details. The edges are filed, smoothed and finally polished. The end result is a lovely, original, recycled pendant with a fantastic history.
The sixpence is presented on either a fab sterling silver necklace with a handmade shepards crook safety catch and accompanying wee star, moon or heart… or a simple but lovely adjustable braided cotton necklace cord. 100% Handcrafted & Recycled in Cambridge, UK
