These hoops are 4 pieces in 1. Not only do you get a pair of beautiful chunky hoops to wear with or without the coins, you can also wear the coins as pendants by adding a chain or string!
The buffalo coin hoops are handmade from recycled sterling silver, originally using an old American coin depicting a buffalo on the front, with the upside down face of a native American on the back. For the animal coin jewellery collection, I always erase any trace of humans on the coins, such as the letters and numbers or any human figures, only keeping the animals or plants. On this occasion it feels very fitting to keep the native American image, as a reminder that all species, wether human or non human, deserve the right to freedom and the right to the beautiful land on this earth, no matter what language they speak or how different they look. We all want freedom.
The chunky round hoops have a slightly irregular, hand forged, rustic look with makers marks, creating hoops that look like they have a story to tell. At Boodi it’s all about finding beauty in the imperfect.
As a lover of animals, history and discarded objects, I have created a series of animal coin jewellery using old coins. Many coins have beautifully depicted animals carved onto them that are just too beautiful to not be worn. I have given the coins new life, banishing any letters, numbers and negativity from the object it previously was, to create a new emblem for each coin; Animal love, respect and freedom.
