This is an extra special post. When HMAS Darwin deployed I became aware of the beautiful jewelry made by the wife of one of the crew. Her name is Caroline and she uses, among other things, vintage cutlery, to fashion the most amazing pieces from watches, to necklaces, rings and earrings, and so much more. I am always fascinated with what she comes up with and how beautiful the end results are. Now she has come up with something really special and I think lots of you might be interested.
In 2015 on the 25th April, Australia and New Zealand will mark the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landings in Gallipoli.
To commemorate this very special event Caroline will be producing these coin pendants by request.
The coins are becoming quite scarce so she will be buying them on a regular basis whenever they become available.
Not just limited to the ladies, Caroline can make this into a key ring for the gents at a much lower price also. Just message her for details via her Facebook page.
This particular necklace is $125 including postage with signature on delivery. I can put the pendant on a long 90cm chain if preferred. She is happy to take deposits.
If you would like to express interest in one or have her hold one please private message her on her Facebook page - and for the non-Facebookers out there just email me and I will put you in touch with Caroline.
I have already ordered mine and can't wait to receive it!
And just for info, if you need a special gift for another purpose, these pendants can also be made with coins featuring other years - perhaps a loved one's birth year, or the year a child was born. Recently Caroline made a set of pendants that were given as Christmas presents to remember a special Grandmother. What a gorgeous idea.
