I happened across these darling British, farthing coins, featuring a wren. Circulation ceased on this design in 1960. I thought the design was worthy of a second life in a piece of jewelry and I was thrilled to find this artist who alters the coin with a soldered edge and bail. (See back of coin in photo #2).
