Recycled silver coins
I had been wanting an excuse to make these for ages and the opportunity arrived when a fab customer commissioned me to do so! Its a beautifully romantic set. Firstly i use a gorgeous pre 1920 silver shilling coin to create the lovely heart necklace. This is a lovely piece in its own right. If the chain option is chosen with it you can select a sweet wee charm to hang at the catch.
I then proceed to create these lovely personalised sixpence cufflinks are cut from some of the sterling silver 1880’s sixpences. The opposite sides are delightful little sterling silver threepence pieces. The face of one of the sixpences can be inscribed with meaningful initials or date. Now the romantic part, from the lovely heart necklace i cut out a jigsaw piece. This piece is then given to one of the sixpence cufflinks and ‘fused’ together. This join uses only the silver, they are one forever.
The cufflink set is asymetrical, allowing the wearer to enjoy both initials or date and the missing piece to a lovers heart. I’m sure the image and your imagination can better describe what is on offer than my limited vocabulary!
