Handmade Pewter Hedgehog Necklace
Handmade Recycled English Pewter Necklace
This wonderful item of jewellery had been hand crafted in the heart of the Cornish tin mining area. Each design is hand drawn and then produced in wax, once the moulds are made recycled tin and copper is mixed and poured, each item is then produced using centrifugal moulds.
Cornwall is famous for its tin mining and although no mines have been active since 2007 the ground is still full of deposits and for many locals tin (main ingredient in pewter) is still in their blood. .
