This commission was so much fun! My customer was given this gold half sovereign by her grand father and it has been in a drawer ever since. She wanted it made into something she could wear and she said she loved my very flowery style.
I love the fact that all flowers have a meaning associated with them and so I looked in my trusty "Flowerpaedia" by Cheralyn Darcey and found that the Peruvian Lily means, among other things, wealth and success. I loved this for this piece as it speaks to the original use and value of the coin.
The customer loved this idea too and so I made this wonderful pendant.
If you have any ideas for a piece you would love to have made, please get in touch so I can make something special, with its own story, for you.
