Recycled silver half crown
A wonderful necklace handcrafted from 100% recycled / upcycled raw materials. A Sterling silver 1890’s sterling silver Victorian half crown coin has been transformed. These coins are beautiful and imbued with history. Unfortunately the majority are relatively uncollectible due to major area of ‘wear’ due to a life of commerce!
Combined with a high scrap silver price means that most are destined to be melted down, the history dissapearing with it. Far better that lovely old coin be reborn as a lovely, wild leaping, festive reindeer necklace!
Obviously the ‘off-cut’ of the remaining silver coin is packed with the silver reindeer for your interest and to keep its history, origin and story alive.
You are welcome to choose a particular necklace length, type of charm at the catch, etc.
Handcrafted & Recycled in Cambridge.
Size : Approx 50 mm * 30 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..
