Recycled silver dime coins
This lovely little liberty skull is individually handcrafted from an old 900 silver dime coin. The dimes I use are coins unwanted by coin collectors due to wear through decades of historical transactions. They are particularly difficult to cut, carve and engrave because the space is small at only 16 mm diameter working area. Using an ultra fine marker pen a quick inspired skull sketch is dropped on to the surface of the silver coin. I then meticulously carve away the design with a traditional hand engraving tools
The young head of Liberty is wearing a Phrygian cap also know as a Liberty Cap. As I hand carve each coin individually to order every one is completely unique and unusual. They look and feel special. An unaltered old silver dime is included to connect the wearer to the necklaces ethical origins and its unusual history.

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..
