Buffalo Coin Hoops
4 pieces in 1
These coin hoops are 4 jewellery 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, whether human or non human, deserve the right to freedom and the right to their beautiful land on this earth.
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 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.
It is important that each piece of Boodi jewellery is positively charged and comes from a place of peace and positive intention. With this always in mind, Boodi jewellery is committed to ethically sourcing its materials.
Boodi jewellery packaging is plastic free and presented in a branded, black and gold, recycled gift box and recycled acid free tissue paper.
