The May tree

May Tree Earrings 

“The May tree. Tree of the faeries. A happy, wild and enchanted tree full of mystery and life. It is the ruler of the 6th Lunar cycle 13th May – 9th June bringing with her deep roots and protective thorns.” – The Harey Growler.



May Tree Earrings 

May Tree earrings – Hawthorn leaf stud earrings handcrafted and recycled from a 100 year old silver shilling. 

These beautifully sweet hawthorn leaf stud type earrings fallen straight from a May tree.  I recycle silver shillings to craft these lovely Hawthorn leaf earrings.

Coincidently, coin collectors do not value these shillings. This is down to marks and blemishes on the surface. For the most part, wear and tear make these coins unwanted – but not to me. I refuse to let these coins be melted down for the silver content. Instead, I’ve transformed them into something desirable. I create designs and ideas to preserve the coins’ personalities and quirks. By doing this, I make sure the historical details are retained; which adds depth, interest and intrigue to the design.

I cut the Hawthorn leaves individually from the old ‘out of circulation’ coins with a traditional jeweller’s saw then carved and engraved.

For added interest, I add an ‘off-cut’ surrounding coin is included with the earrings. Handmade and completely recycled in Cambridge, UK.

Size : Approx 10 mm * 12 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..
