Handmade by St Justin, in Penzance, Cornwall exclusively for White Wizard Purple Elf.
The torc itself is made from shipwrecked Tin, the torc ends are made from Pewter.
Made with Antique Shipwrecked Tin, which had lain undisturbed on the seabed off Anglesey, Wales on the wreck of the SS Liverpool for over 150 years, and Pewter heads.
The SS Liverpool sank off Anglesey in 1863 carrying a cargo of tin ingots which were smelted at Chyandour, Penzance. These ingots were dated 1862 and stamped with the lamb and flag mark that was commonly used in those days as a symbol of purity. One hundred and thirty eight years later the first cargo of Cornish tin ingots was raised off the seabed from the wreck.
