Shop Announcement:

All jewellery listed here that says silver is sterling silver, I do not use silver plate at all. There will be elements of sterling silver in every design (keyrings excepted), some will be completely so, others may have combinations of copper, brass, bronze, dichroic glass, enamel, pewter and/or semi-precious stones as well. To make things easier for you if you wish, I can also gift wrap any presents, add a hand-written note and send them directly to the recipient – just leave me a note with what you would like to say when you checkout.

Necklace from recycled bronze halfpennies

Love this


Halfpenny necklace. A necklace made with 3 bronze halfpennies, with a date of your choosing if you want. (If the date is not relevant to you, the 1965 is already in stock and can be despatched straightaway, other dates will take a little longer.)

The pre-decimal halpennies with the Golden Hind ship on the reverse, were in circulation 1937 - 1967. I have supplies of most years except 1938, and also 1961 when none were minted. I have limited amounts of some other years, so do check with me first before ordering if you want a specific date. If the 1965 is acceptable, then just proceed to checkout as usual.

Finished with black leather cord and sterling silver fittings and fastener. It should fit snugly as a choker/short pendant length as shown in the photo modelled by my cousin Dominica who is MUCH more photogenic than I am! The 1965 necklace in stock totals 17inches all the way round, i.e. including the 3 coins.

Bronze (a combination of copper and tin) is the metal to celebrate an 8th wedding anniversary in the traditional calendar and 19th in the modern.

Despatched in a presentation box via the Royal Mail Signed For service in the UK. Care instructions provided.

It is illegal to deface the queen's image if the coin is still legal tender. The pre-decimal coins that I use are no longer legal tender - and I also have a license to do what I do.

Recycled in Lancashire


My Grandad left a big pile of coins in the loft and my uncle had been hoarding them ever since. He mentioned he had them and I grabbed them - he was only too pleased to get rid of them and I've been able to put them to a lot of use.
