De Vine Cross
De Vine cross necklace – handmade and recycled silver 100 year old sterling silver shilling
As Christ said: “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman” (John, 15:1). The main value of vine is its connection with the Holy Communion, the wine obtained from grapes and intended for use in celebration of the Eucharist
I have lovingly crafted each cross pendant from a 100 year old silver shilling. 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. This protects their history and ensures their stories live on.
Once the design is freehand sketched on to the coin, it is hand cut and carved using traditional hand saws, chisels and files. This traditional process allows me to have a close connection to each piece. This also gives the added bonus of each piece being completely unique. Each cross is individually handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.
