A pair of recycled silver shillings
Another pendant which is a joy and a priveledge to create. The Moon Gazing hares design is based around recyling a pair of sterling silver shillings circa 1900. The resultant pendant is a lovely little lump of lapin 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.
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. You are also welcome to select what you would like growing in the field. Choose a wild mushroom, wonderful ‘love grows’ flower or simply wild grass.
The moon gazing hares shilling 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.
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.

    Stunningly Beautiful Work

    I am beyond impressed by the exquisite detail of this piece. The workmanship is impeccable and the design is truly unique. The shop even engraved the back with my rabbit’s name — Aviv. The sentimental value this piece has for me is reinforced by the obvious effort and extraordinary skill that went into it.

    Made my wife’s Christmas

    Got this piece of jewellery for my wife as a Christmas present. Didn’t see it in the flesh until she opened it on Christmas day well it looks even better close up than in the pictures she is so happy with it and I am over the moon. The Hairy Growler is a very skilled craftsman but that could be said of lots of people but I think what sets him apart is his eye for detail and artistic ideas that are interesting and beautiful to behold.
    Thanks for making a great Christmas even more special.

    A beautiful mesmerising pendant that is full of character. It feels solid and carefully crafted. I am so happy with this that I haven’t taken it off since it arrived. I wanted to buy something special and this has ticked the box perfectly. Very happy with my purchase.

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..
