Touching the heart
Touching the heart – handmade and Recycled 100 year old silver Half Crown coin
The balanced yet asymmetrical style of this tree of love and life design not only looks very beautiful as a necklace pendant but also perfectly symbolises the interconnectedness of all life within the earth realm. I have handcrafted and recycled the design from an 100 year old silver half crown coin. The original coin details border the tree nicely, framing it within its original, green, ethical ideals and origins.
When thinking about the design I thought it would be a lovely wedding gift for the bride and groom or anniversary gift celebrating interconnectedness. The passage of time together can be marked by selecting a coin which was made exactly 100 earlier.
The original coin date is also perfect for relating the piece to a special birthday; ” I was lucky enough to be given the tree of life half crown for my 50th birthday and I absolutely love the 1915 date of the coin is still visible, thinking that the coin was made 100 years ago and exactly 50 years before I was born (don’t feel so old now!). It was a very thought provoking and beautiful gift that I will carry with me for the rest of my life (although my husband has already begun coveting it a little strongly!0 Thank you so much.” – Anne Williamsburke
