Silver Thrupence Flowers
Silver Thrupence Flowers – Recycled silver threepence coins
These lovely little lucky flower cufflinks are a great gift, handcrafted using genuine sterling silver Threepence coins. The gorgeous ‘antique’ patina finish is completely natural and original. You are welcome to request years which may add an extra something to the wearer. If they are for a wedding or birthday in 2017 then its quite nice to select 1917 for the year. If the years aren’t relevant be assured you will receive a lovely pair of historically interesting and aesthetically beautiful lucky threepence cufflinks. Check out the drop down menu for a list of currently available years.
I hand-make these delicate cufflinks from a 100 year old silver sixpence coin. Using a marker pen, I drop a quick flower outline sketch onto the surface of the lucky threepence. I then meticulously carve away the design with a traditional hand chisels and cut details using a traditional jewellers saw. The coins I use are marred from wear marks from being used to buy and sell over one hundred years ago. Rather than let them simply be melted down for the silver content, I absolutely love coming up with designs and ideas. Then, I can transform them into a little lucky frog. By doing this I retain the historical details, simultaneously adding depth, interest and intrigue to the design. As I hand-cut each coin individually to order, every one is completely unique and unusual. They look and feel special.
