Recycled silver coins “I really enjoy making her and seeing her appear in front of my eyes as the day draws to a close in the workshop.” – The Growler


Engrave initials on reverse ?

Recycled silver coins
Gaia is the personification of the Earth and this is my interpretation of her in silver. I really enjoy making her and seeing her appear in front of my eyes as the day draws to a close in the workshop. Each one i make is made for you personally to order. I promise she will be the same but even more beautiful than the one in the picture (they all look better in ‘real life’ than in a photo and they certainly feel exceptional.
She is carefully handcrafted using only traditional jewellers tools and techniques. She is made from 100% RECYCLED raw materials, being sterling silver Victorian coins circa 1890’s. These coins are very precious and valuable and i always feel honoured working them. The coins i am offered are generally viewed as ‘uncollectible’ by numismatists due to signs of wear after a 100+ years of circulation, being used to buy and sell goodness knows what. Rather than them heading off to be melted down to form generic silver ingots for investment, I cherish the opportunity to intervene and extend their existence. The worn nature of the coins makes them more interesting to work with and offer more opportunities for design.
Once the coin has been ‘reborn’ into a delightfully precious keepsake that will be worn and cared for generations i mark the reverse with my makers mare and offer the opportunity to add a couple of meaningful initials.
Size: Approx 25mm * 22 mm

Many of the necklace / pendant designs are complete. These designs have a sterling silver chain attached to the pendant from both sides. This design is perfect for looking in a mirror to fasten the necklace. It also makes a fabulous feature of the handmade hook catch (and star if chosen).  The necklace length you choose includes the length of the actual pendant. Do not worry about the pendant dimensions we will take care of your order. Order the necklace length you would normally wear and the necklace you receive will sit in the perfect position..
