St Christopher necklace – handmade and recycled silver 100 year old Shilling
The patron saint of travellers inspired me to create this pendant which has been lovingly and meticulously hand cut from a 100 year old silver shilling.
Each pendant has a small special inlay of 24ct gold. The coins themselves are the perfect medium for this beautiful design, inline with a love of nature using these coins is the perfect ethical and green solution. No new silver is destructively ‘mined’ and old, uncollectible pure silver coins are saved from the ‘melting pot’ of bullion merchants so some of their history and story live on.
Once the design has been freehand sketched on to the coin it is carefully hand cut and carved using traditional hand saws, chisels and files. This traditional process allows me to have a close connection to each piece, ensuring the end result is personal and unique. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.
Size : Approx 24 mm diameter.
