Recycled silver Shilling “This beautiful little Tree of Life pendant has been lovingly and hand cut with enormous care from a 100 year old silver shilling. Inspired by the tree of life idea, shape, ethos and belief. 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.” – The Growler

Recycled silver Shilling
This beautiful little Tree of Life pendant has been lovingly and hand cut with enormous care from a 100 year old silver shilling. Inspired by the tree of life idea, shape, ethos and belief.
Each pendant is carefully handcrafted to order, using only these recycled silver coins. 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.

    A tree for the family.

    This is a beautiful piece showing off the craftmanship of Hairy Growler and yet retaining the origin of the original silver. The tree is a fantastic way to remind you of your family and links you into nature too.It’s just gorgeous!

    magical

    Autumn is my favorite time of year and this necklace really gives me Autumn feeling that hasn’t quite landed here in sunny Ireland yet. It really is another example of brilliance from a talented artist and i love the star on the chain really gives it a special little touch ⭐

    breath taking

    I am in absolute awe of this piece of art. As a tree lover in general this is something I could only wish to have in my collection. Im not a big jewellery wearer but I dont think I would ever take this off. I am blown away. Saving pennies immediately!!

    Gorgeous!

    My Hairy Growler collection has began…despite the fact that this was meant to be a one off treat for myself, I love it so much that I’m already trying to decide what piece to get next!

    My only criticism would be (and admittedly I am being a little picky) is that the catch is a little tricky to get fastened and unfastened; having said that, it just takes a little patience and practice.

    In a nutshell though, this necklace is simply beautiful and I get compliments daily. It really is something special!

    Thank you Mr Hairy Growler!
