Raven necklace – Repurposed upcycled 20p
Inspired by my love of curiosity of Ravens. I personally was curious to see if I could carve a curious Raven from an old twenty pence. It was possible, but it was no simple task!
I carefully handcraft each pendant with care and love. The first task is to freehand sketch the raven onto the coin in such a way that the crown is worn. I sketch the design onto the coin, then I carefully hand cut and carve it out, using traditional hand saws. This traditional process allows me to have a close connection to each piece. This ensures the end result is personal, unique and an out right curiosity.
Obviously the unique charm of this piece is that a simple coin is transformed into a precious wearable work of art. I have set the coin with a precious wee ruby sitting in a 18ct solid gold gypsy setting. You are welcome to request a beautiful emerald in place of the ruby.
Finally, you may also request me to engrave a special initial on the reverse.
Handcrafted in Cambridge, England.
