A special gift

It was my darling Mummy's birthday on Tuesday and I decided to make her something meaningful and special...

This coin was originally a brooch owned by my Mum's Grandmother. It has 'Mizpah' engraved on it. From what we can find out 'Mizpah' is a sign of love between friends and family, also it was given as a token to help bring loved ones home from a long trip safely.
I took the brooch off the back and set it in silver.
Something to be passed on through the generations :)
