Recycled Half Penny
This coin, the old English half penny was issued with a lovely tall ship as the design inspired by Sir Francis Drake’s “Golden Hind”.
When this coin is hand pierced, filed and polished, the results are fabulous. A great deal of time, absolute care and attention are required to create this ‘cut’ coin pendant. As you can imagine one tiny unwanted movement of the saw can easily (and does!) destroy a rigging line or mast on the ship, rendering all of the work up to that point completely useless.
Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.
Size : Approx 25 mm diameter
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..
