Recycled silver Florin coin
This beautiful little silver bird in the tree pendant has been meticulously handcrafted from a flattened sterling silver florin coin, pre 1919. These lovely old pure silver coins are fab to work with.
Discarded and uncollectible by numismatists, these coins are just screaming out to be lovingly and sympathetically recycled. Rather than simply melting them down for the silver i prefer to invest time into creating a piece which is beautiful and ethical. I aim to not only create a contemporary, wearable design but also revive some of the original history, interest an beauty.
Each one of these trees is a fun challenge to create. Each and every branch counts to the overall ‘look and feel’ of the finished piece. Even the ‘off-cut’ will connect you to your new tree and its fascinating history.
For added interest the ‘off-cut’ surrounding silver coin is included with the necklace. This simple byproduct will connect you to your new tree and its fascinating history.
