Recycled silver Half Crown coin
This lovely necklace has been created from a single sterling silver 1880’s half-crown coin. Each and every one i make is made from a coin of the same sterling silver quality and age. These coins are lovely to use as the silver has a unmistakable feel and texture. The age and history of the silver is also great. Its wonderful to think that the necklace or item of jewellery you are wearing was once a silver coin, used over one hundred years ago, in various transactions, etc.
The coin is carefully flattened out into a workable sheet of silver. It is then meticulously cut into the desired form, then filed and polished. The finished piece is then joined to a lovely sterling silver chain. Each one, completely unique and special. Treat yourself or someone who is worth it…
It comes complete with the original ‘off-cut’ from the silver half crown coin. This is not only a fab piece of provenance but also a lovely ‘scrap’ which connects the necklace to its wonderfully interesting, inherent history.
