Raven feather necklace – handmade and recycled silver Florins

I have now read this enjoyable book several times (The Raven Girl is only a little, but very beautiful, 80 page illustrated book) and I have realised it definitely inspired me to create this piece. I have recycled a lovely but very worn and uncollectible silver coin. Here is a link to the book : http://audreyniffenegger.com/books/published-books/raven-girl-2013/ if you haven’t already read it.

These lovely pendants are hand cut from 100 year old pure silver British Florin coins. Circa 1890’s – 1900 these coins have a wonderful warmth and feel. Uncollectable to coin dealers due to excessive wear, these coins are the perfect raw material to recycle into something precious, unique and wearable. To obtain a rich, deep black patina the silver is oxidised in liver of sulphur and burnished. The feather comes complete with the original ‘donor’ coin.

Black Raven Feathers were worn by some Native Americans to express and symbolise changes in spirit.

Its also worth noting you don’t have to be a Raven Girl to wear this feather, you could be the postman! I am a fairly ‘manly man’ and wear one! I just love these feathers. 100% Handcrafted & Recycled in Cambridge, UK

    I am saving up my pennies for this spectacular piece!! Not only is the
    Craftmanship impeccable….I feel as if a door to a magical world opens every tine I look at it. I
    Can’t imagine the magic of putting it on!!!
    I live in Seattle where art and design and mystical treasures surround me on a daily basis….but
    This necklace transcends even that….
    Its an otherworldly love that we can capture and step into.

    Beautiful piece!

    This is a lovely necklace, the feather is beautiful and so well made. I’m always asked where I have bought it from. Great use of an old coin.

    Beautiful!

    What can I say about this gorgeous piece? Even better than it looks on the website, my Raven Girl was the object of much admiration and desire from the guests (and photographer!) at my wedding. I’d actually neglected to mention when ordering the date I needed it for yet it must’ve been fate as my necklace arrived the very day before I was due to get married!

    I adore my Raven Girl. The engraving on the back makes this a one-of-a-kind which I absolutely love, and I have it on my dressing table whenever I’m not wearing it so that I can admire it every day! I also enjoy having the remnant of the silver coin included in the parcel as I’ve tucked that into my purse so I can carry it around with me as a lucky charm. I’m sure this gorgeous necklace will be the first of many HG pieces in my life before long, but what a piece to start with! Stunning.

    Love, Love, Love it!

    I really do love this necklace 🙂 it’s a stunning piece and I get lots of comments on it. I also love that it’s made from reclaimed silver, it’s cut out and carved by hand – great quality and unusual piece, thank you!

    Utterly delighted

    i adore my pendant, it is everything that I hoped it would be and more. The feather is just perfect, I’m going to struggle to do it justice in words but it has a really special feel to it, not a sterile piece that is mass made but a beautiful hand crafted piece that is so tactile and even in the short time I have had it I have had many compliments on it. I am completely smitten and delighted with it.
