Recycled silver sixpence coin
This inspiring swallow design is definitely quite a challenge to cut and engrave. The sixpence is such a small coin at only 16 mm diameter working area. Each one of these pendants is handmade from a 100 year old solid silver sixpence coin. Using a marker pen a quick inspired sketch is dropped on to the surface of the sixpence. I then meticulously carve away the design with a traditional hand engraving tool and cut details using a traditional jewellers saw. Once the details are cut the pendant is given an extremely bright polishing which really brings the coin to life.
As I handcut each coin individually to order every one is completely unique and unusual. They look and feel special.
Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.
Size : 19 mm diameter

    Sixpence charming

    Gorgeous piece – even more lovely in the flesh!

    Was torn between this and the skull sixpence so left it to my husband to decide and so pleased he chose this one. I can wear it everyday, it goes with every outfit and is already one of my favourite pieces in a very spoilt jewellery collection with pieces worth 20x as much. Amazing value and so individual.

Many of the necklace / pendant designs are complete. These designs have a sterling silver chain attached to the pendant from both sides. This design is perfect for looking in a mirror to fasten the necklace. It also makes a fabulous feature of the handmade hook catch (and star if chosen).  The necklace length you choose includes the length of the actual pendant. Do not worry about the pendant dimensions we will take care of your order. Order the necklace length you would normally wear and the necklace you receive will sit in the perfect position..
