Recycled silver Shilling
You dent need me to tell you about Bee’s, you are here on this page for a reason…
Each one of these pendants is handmade from a 100 year old solid silver shilling coin. 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.
Using a marker pen a quick inspired sketch is dropped on to the surface of the shilling. I then meticulously carve away the design with a traditional hand engraving tool and cut details using a traditional jewellers saw. Once the details are cut the pendant is given an extremely bright polishing which really brings the coin to life.
As I handcut each coin individually to order every one is completely unique and unusual. They look and feel special.
