Recycled coins
Silver shillings, old ‘ship haypenny’ half pennies and a ‘thrupney-bit’ threepence coins are recycled to craft these lovely Oak leaf and acorn earrings. These coins are unwanted by coin collectors due to wear marks from being used to buy and sell over one hundred years ago.
Rather than let them simply be melted down for the silver content I absolutely love coming up with designs and ideas to transform them into something desirable. By doing this the historical details are retained, simultaneously adding depth, interest and intrigue to the design.
The Oak leaves and acorns have been individually hand cut from the old ‘out of circulation’ coins with a traditional jewellers saw.
For added interest an ‘off-cut’ surrounding coin is included with the earrings. The Oak leaves can also be engraved on the reverse with personal initials upon request. You are welcome to choose from two silver leaves, two ‘half penny’ leaves, a mixture of both or all four leaves to share with someone special.
Handmade and completely recycled in Cambridge, UK. Complete with the finest sterling silver earwires.
Size : Approx 25 mm * 11 mm
