    Hard work appreciated

    I love the detail in this piece. I am studying silversmithing at my local art college and dived in feet first and tried to do one of these for myself. Not an easy task when you are new to piercing, and these are such thick coins to work with!Needless to say I gave up after a lot of saw blades and frustration.
    I appreciate how much time must go in to each of these pieces, they are beautiful and well worth the price 🙂

    Purchased this item to celebrate my 50th birthday and to commemorate my Mum who sadly passed at 48yrs old. So I chose her birth year for this item and went for the full cutout showing the THREE PENCE as it looked better I think. Was very pleased when it arrived, it is everything you see in the photos. A lovely and unusual piece to wear for many years to come.

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..
