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.

Description

A guitar plectrum hand cut (not with a laser but with a thin-bladed jewellers saw) from a pre-decimal bronze penny coin. This one is from 1912 and the reign of George V. This is the only item that I make that the fitting, in this case the metal keyring mechanism itself, is NOT sterling silver.

Despatched in an organza bag, wrapped in tissue paper, via the Royal Mail Signed For service in the UK. Care instructions provided.

Recycled in Lancashire.

It is obviously not in mint condition - all marks and scratches are a reflection of it's age and the decades of use it has experienced.

This one is in stock and ready to go. If you want a particular year, this will take time to make. THese coins were minted until 1967 (though not every year) but I have most of the years they were available. I'm using the older ones for guitar picks, rather than for the jewellery I usually make, as they are more worn and slightly thinner than the later, mint dates, so more suitable for practical use.

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