I first discovered Rachel Eardley, a couple of years ago just after my daughter Wren was born. She cuts illustrative details from old coins and re-works them into delicate jewellery. Rachel uses lots of different motifs - from kings and queens to penguins and pineapples but I was most drawn to the wrens (taken from old British farthings) which often feature in her work. On that first meeting, I felt obliged to buy a piece. After all, one day my little girl would grow up and inherit it! Since then, I admit Rachel's jewellery has become a bit of a habit of mine. I started with a necklace and now I have a ring too. What I would really like is the magnificant multi-coin nature necklace (pictured above) but unfortunately that is going to require some serious saving!
