Hand-crafted from an original cupro-nickel Irish 3d coin, this beautiful pendant highlights the original design which would have mostly gone un-noticed by users back in the days when it was legal tender.
I have pierced out the coin using a very fine jewellers saw, filing and sanding to give a smooth finish and then carefully polishing. Finally the item is finished with a special lacquer in order to maintain the bright finish and prevent the possibility of skin discolouration or allergic reaction. The coin is 17mm in diameter.
There are a number of different options as to how this coin can be pierced out, varying how much metal is removed and whereabouts on the coin this happens - please see my other items.
My mother-in-law is from Northern Ireland and she had an old charm bracelet which included four of these small Irish coins with a Hare design. I was interested in the coins and searched for them on the internet, where I found examples from around the world of jewellery crafted from everyday items, such as coins. I was given the charm bracelet and made my first pendant from one of the Hare coins. Since then I have been acquiring interesting coins from various sources and continuing the theme.
