Recycled silver Shilling
I have decided to hand cut each one of these lovely moon gazing hare pendants from only the finest antique sterling silver lucky shillings.
The design is freehand drawn onto the silver shilling. Several holes are drilled and the sections are delicately cut away. The edges are filed and the details are carefully hand carved, smoothed and finally polished. The end result is a lovely, original, recycled pendant with a fantastic history.
Not only are you are welcome to request some personal, meaningful initials for the reverse, 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 you would like to see the making of the piece please feel free to watch this if you have a spare minute :
