Recycled silver shilling
A delightful pair of earrings made from a 100 year old silver shilling. Each pair is handcrafted and recycled through a sequence of traditional silversmithing techniques. The silver coin is hammered, sketched on, scribed upon, cut into shape, engraved, carved, polished and finished. They represent a musical, eco-conscious outlook perfectly and the wearer is connected to their interesting history and ethical origins by the donor shilling ‘off-cut’ which is included with the earrings.
Every set i create will be unique and original. However i guarantee that the set you receive will look similar to, but more beautiful than these! You are welcome to request them in a matte finish (shown) or shiny, highly polished.
Size : Largest approx 22 mm * 10 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..
