Tortoise brooch in recycled bronze coins

Tortoise brooch in recycled bronze coins
£30.00 1 Available
Love this


A tortoise brooch recycled from a bronze penny and a domed bronze halfpenny soldered together, both 1906, so obviously neither are in mint condition! I wanted a more subtle effect for the shell and a more worn surface seemed to be a better option than a more recent example.

Approximately 3cms long. Finished with a sterling silver fastener.

Despatched in a presentation box and includes free postage, via the Royal Mail Signed For service in the UK. Cleaning guide enclosed.

FYI - Bronze is an alloy of 95% copper, 4% tin and 1% zinc.
It is used to represent the 8th wedding anniversay in the traditional calendar and the 19th wedding anniversary in the modern version.

Recycled and re-made in Lancashire


I like to make animal jewellery and I'm finding that a lot of people like wearing them, especially the brooches. I'm always being told that brooches aren't fashionable but tell my customers that - who wants to be "fashionable" when you can be original instead?
