The Oak King
Green man jewellery handmade and recycled silver coins
I absolutely loved creating this Greenman necklace. It was one of those creations where for hours you’re thinking ‘this is not going to look good or work too well! aarghh’. A daunting thought to have tumbling through your mind when you are many hours into a piece – ‘think happy thoughts’ i was telling myself. I did think happy thoughts ! yay! and this is the end result. Needless to say i was over the moon with the finished piece.
He has been created and recycled from two sterling silver coins circa 1880’s, absolutely lovely silver to work with. The process used to make it, as with every Hairy Growler piece only involves traditional hand tools and methods. Every piece is hand cut, filed and polished by myself in Cambridge. Each Greenman i create will be made using the exact same process and materials and the end result will be guaranteed to be equally as lovely if not more so. Upon request I have created two other members of the Green Man family. One is an Autumn woodland Green Man and the other is a golden summertime Green Man. You can see these on my Facebook page or blog. If you would prefer one on these please feel free to contact me with your request.
Alternatively go with my favourite and order the gentleman above!
