The Principle of Correspondence
Moon gazing necklace – handcrafted, hand carved and recycled silver 1840’s Florin coin.
The luminaries and heavenly bodies are of great interest and as intangible extraordinary visibles they are of course inspiration to the curious minded. Enjoying these wonders in life with another is defo a special connection. The first step in creating this piece is to prepare the surface of the coin. This is done by removing all existing details on the front whilst leaving the evident history on the reverse. The entire design is hand carved and engraved into the surface of the silver coin. This is a super time consuming and exact process but one which I enjoy immensely. The finished result is quite unique. What more could you ask for really? – To be engraved with a small personal inscription of initials the reverse? well okay, I’ll take pleasure in doing that for you too.
Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.
