Special silver tree necklace – handmade and recycled silver Florin coin

A lovely symbol of both a true love and connection with nature. The necklace symbolises this love by demonstrating an eco-conscious lifestyle filled with green ethical choices. Each sterling silver legendary tree of life is inspired, handcrafted individually, by myself, in Cambridge.

Using traditional jewellers hand tools, a beautiful, unwanted, sterling silver pre 1919 English coin is transformed into an intricate, yet simple, tree pendant. The coin is flattened to increase to working area. The rough tree design is sketched onto the surface and then painstakingly detailed with a jewellers hand saw and hand engraving chisels. It is these processes which reveal the beautiful details.

Discarded and uncollectible by numismatists, these coins are just screaming out to be lovingly and sympathetically recycled. Rather than simply melting them down for the silver i prefer to invest time into creating a piece which is beautiful and ethical. I aim to not only create a contemporary, wearable design but also revive some of the original history, interest an beauty.

Each one of these trees is a complete pleasure to make, totally unique and completely individual. Once the tree is successfully cut away from the coin it is finished with hand engraved bark and leaves. A simple mounted star or heart hanging freely at the bale or ‘shepards crook’ safety catch if silver chain option is chosen.

Size : Approx 35 mm * 35 mm
