The Joy of Treasure
Recycled 100 year old silver sixpence
“With a thoughtful disposition the talking badger lay back in the Telmarine woodland den and ruminated, golden chalice in the gentle cup of his paws. The magical silver moonlight and eternally twinkling stars heightened his senses whilst simultaneously transporting imagination back to a golden era of the Pevensies dynasty…” He has been lovingly and meticulously hand cut from a 100 year old silver sixpence.
Each pendant is carefully handcrafted to order, using only these recycled silver coins. The coins themselves are the perfect medium for this beautiful design, inline with a love of nature using these coins is the perfect ethical and green solution. No new silver is destructively ‘mined’ and old, uncollectible pure silver coins are saved from the ‘melting pot’ of bullion merchants so some of their history and story live on.
Once the design has been freehand sketched on to the coin it is carefully hand cut and carved using traditional hand saws, chisels and files. This traditional process allows me to have a close connection to each piece, ensuring the end result is personal and unique. The chalice is made from a wee nugget of 24ct gold. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.
