Apostle of Ireland
St Patrick necklace – handmade and recycled rare silver Irish Florin coin
St Patrick inspired this pendant; he is the patron saint of Ireland. Saint Patrick is considered an Apostle of Ireland . Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit! Happy St Paddy’s Day
Each St Patrick necklace has a 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 metals are destructively ‘mined’ and old coins are saved from the ‘melting pot’ of bullion merchants. This protects their history and ensures their stories live on.
Once the design is freehand sketched on to the coin, it is hand cut and carved using traditional hand saws, chisels and files. This traditional process allows me to have a close connection to each piece. This also gives the added bonus of each piece being completely unique. The St Patrick necklace is handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England. You are welcome to choose a fab wee Irish thrupence coin or a slightly larger silver Irish Florin.
