Chasing the sun

“Chasing the sun and riding the waves”

Swallow necklace handcrafted and recycled from a 100 year old silver two Shilling coin.

This beautifully simple free as a bird migrating swallow necklace has been carefully and lovingly crafted from a single pre 1920 sterling silver two shilling, Florin coin.  The majority of coins circulated over a hundred years ago are pure silver and the ones that are still remaining are in poor condition, from the point of view of a coin collector. The coins are thus only valued for their inherent scrap silver value, which is obviously a real shame. So rather than them being melted i like to flatten the coins and use the history and life of the coin as an extra element of interest and beauty.

The resultant sterling silver swallow necklace is suspended from a delicate yet strong, unobtrusive silver chain.
