The silver Tree of Eternity
Yggdrasil tree necklace – handmade and Recycled silver Shilling
This beautiful little Yggdrasil tree of the world and life pendant has been lovingly and hand cut with enormous care from a 100 year old silver shilling. Inspired by the tree of the world idea, shape, ethos and belief.
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. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge, England.
Size : Approx 24 mm diameter.
