Repurposed, upcycled ‘out of circulation’ 50p
Springer Spaniel jewellery handmade from old coins. Each coin is recycled into a completely original piece to make a Springer Spaniel necklace pendant ☽◯☾.
Firstly, I draw the design freehand drawn onto the sterling silver coin. Then I drill several holes and cut the sections delicately away. I file, smooth and finally polish the edges. The end result is a lovely, original, recycled pendant with a captivating history. Each one of the coin pendants I create is different, unusual and unique. The coins are discarded and uncollectible for numismatists, and are begging to be recycled. I invest time into creating a piece which is beautiful and ethical. My aim is to not only create a contemporary, wearable design but also revive some of the original history. I preserve these coins for a future generation.
Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.
