Recycled silver Threepence coins
The new Teeny Weeny Kingsy Queeny bracelet includes lots of tiny details including flowers, stars, leaves, personal initials, including recycled silver threepence Kingsy and Queeny birds and old penny ‘beaten’ heart. As a Hairy Growler original bracelet it is totally handmade. The King and Queen Robins are hand cut and carved from 100 year old solid silver Threepence coins. These beautiful sterling silver coins are unwanted by coin collectors when elements become rubbed and marked. To collectors they are only valuable in terms of their silver content. The silver fragment links are also solid silver and each one is hammer beaten, with many engraved with lovely symbols displaying a true love of nature.
These Threepence coins are a fantastic raw material to use as they have lovely details and history (most being well over 100 years old!). Having the opportunity to re-use them rather than collectors ‘scrapping’ them for the basic silver content is good. The ‘off-cuts’ from the teeny weeny king and queen Robins are also included which beautifully connect the wear to their history and green and ethical origins.
