Owl jewellery – Handcrafted and Recycled silver Crown coins.
This fabulous new hunting Barn Owl necklace has been meticulously handcrafted from three large 120 year old recycled solid silver Crown coins. Each one of these coins is obtained due to them not being of collectible quality. This is a real shame as they represent such a fasinating history. Rather than let them simply be ‘melted down’ to release the base value of the precious metal, i buy as many as i can to transform into lovely, wearable jewellery! I make sure each piece retains signs of its historical origins.
Firstly the coins are fused together to give me the perfect, large working area. The Barn owl has been carefully hand drawn onto the surface of the flattened silver coins. It is then cut out by hand using a traditional jewellers piercing saw. Once the basic shape has been cut i meticulously and individually carve the details of each feather. Each necklace ordered will be completely unique and individual. Be assured that it will be equally, if not more beautiful. The reverse of the necklace is also very special, the details of which will remain a secret for its wearer! I’m not telling 🙂
The story of Blodeuwedd is never far from my consciousness always floating around in my mind.
Made from flowers of the woodland and the oak being the wisest of all trees, Blodeuwedd like us is part of and connected to the Earth. Her spirit and divine energy are profound. Through her experience of existence she accepts herself and turns against what other people who seek to control her want her to be. From flower maiden to self actualised, independent critical thought – wise.
Blodeuwedd Silent wings, wise Devine Gnosis, knowing A Goddess. This is a gorgeous necklace to wear and absolutely perfect for partying or wandering through the woods!
