Sami Breastplate Coin Necklace
Inspired by the Sami - an indigenous people who inhabit the Arctic circle, and their ancient drawings of symbols for hunting, the earth and nature - all said to bring good fortune.
This breast plate necklace has six double-sided coins hanging from it, featuring intricate images of a shrine to Reindeer, patterns of animals such as deer, birds, fish, the sun, moon and stars.
Handmade in our London studio from 100% recycled silver, which is then oxydised and polished to bring out the detailing.
Necklace comes beautifully packaged in a recycled No 13 box.
Medal pendant measures approx 1.6cm in diameter. Curb chain measures 20" long.
**As this collection is inspired by an indigenous culture that is heavily affected by our actions on the planet, a percentage of the profits are donated to the National Wildlife Federation - a conservation group which unites individuals and businesses to protect wildlife, wild places, and the environment.**
About No 13
No 13 is a new jewellery brand that brings you a touch of ethical luxury.
We are inspired by nature and indigenous artisans who live in some of the remotest and endangered places on the planet. We wanted to work alongside them to bring you the most original and contemporary designs.
Our first collection is inspired and handmade in collaboration with Sami Artisans who inhabit the Arctic Circle. Our aim was to create a modern twist on ancient Sami styles, and in doing so make something luxurious, beautiful and sustainably-sourced.
