Moon Gazing

Moon Gazing hare necklace – handcrafted and recycled from three recycled silver shillings.

Another pendant which is a joy and a priveledge to create. The Moon Gazing hare design is based around recyling three simple sterling silver shillings circa 1895. The resultant pendant is a lovely little lump of silver!
As with all Hairy Growler jewellery each and every one ordered is completely unique, hand made and 100% recycled.

The design is freehand sketched onto the surface of the coins. A jewellers piercing saw is used to delicately cut and carve the design from the coins. The pendant is then gently filed, shaped, polished and oxidised to give it a brilliant silver finished contrasted with the black oxidisation of the midnight sky. It is finished with a bronze moon also cut from an 100 year old coin. The moon can be silver upon request.

You are welcome to request a simple inscription of initials on the reverse of the pendant. If this option is chosen i will use a much less detailed, but perhaps much older, i.e. 1800’s silver shilling for the reverse of the pendant. The worn details on the reverse will give me a surface to inscribe.  If no engraving is requested the reverse will be like the necklace in the picture. I will use a fab hostorically detailed coin, which will be a lovely little secret history for the wearer to share.
