lovebird jewellery – handcrafted and recycled silver coins
This sweet tweet necklace is meticulously handcrafted from a sterling silver Georgian florin coin. The coin was carefully and forcefully flattened out in my usual manner. Once stretched out to the desired working shape i simply draw the design on with a fine nibbed marker pen. This rough sketch is then embellished and used as a approx guide line for my piercing saw work (the best bit! yipee). From here the pendant was filed, sanded, polished, and finished with some fine line intricate engraving.
Obviously the ‘off-cut’ of the remaining silver coin is packed with the silver love birdies for your interest and to keep its history, origin and story alive.
Handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.
Size : Approx 30 mm * 25 mm
