Recycled silver Half Crown coin
This sweet tweet necklace is crafted from one sterling silver half crown coin, dated 1887. Rather than my usual design of leaves i have used ‘Orla Kiely’ inspired leaves to nestle around the wee birdy. A sterling silver half crown was used as the recycled raw material and the little pearls at the side are also recycled from a charity shop find.
The coin was flattened out in my usual manner. Once stretched out to the desired working shape i simply drew the design on with a fine nibbed marker pen. This rough sketch is then embellished and used as a approx guide line for my piercing saw work (the best bit! yipee) From here the pendant was filed, sanded, polished, and finished with a wee pearls.
Handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.
Size : Approx 60 mm * 30 mm
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).
