Shop Announcement:

CoronaVirus Update. My Folksy shop is staying open. Please note that although I always aim to send orders as quickly as possible there will be delays in the postal service and that is beyond control. To make things easier for you, I can also gift wrap any presents, add a hand-written note and send them directly to the recipient – just leave me a note when you checkout.
Everything 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, some will be completely so, others may have combinations of copper, brass, bronze, dichroic glass, enamel, pewter and/or semi-precious stones as well.

Moon and Star earrings from old bronze coins

A pair of earrings hand cut from old bronze pre-decimal coins. The star is cut from a penny and is approximately 2cms point to point. The moon is cut from a 1960 halfpenny and "the man in the moon" face is cut into this. It measures approximately 2.5cms point to point. Sterling silver ear wires attached.

Bronze is 95% copper, 4% tin 1% zinc and represents the 8th wedding anniversary in the traditional calendar and the 19th in the modern version.

FYI - 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.

Despatched in a presentation box via the Royal Mail Signed For service. UK sale only.

Handmade in Lancashire.

Care guide provided.


My Grandad left loads of old pre-decimal coins in the loft - halfpennies, pennies & brass 3d bits. I'm gradually working my way through them, developing lots of different ideas as I go along.
It is legal to cut into coins that are no longer in current circulation (it is illegal to deface the Queen's image otherwise) but to stop any objections from those who aren't aware of how the law works, I also have a license issued by HM Treasury.
