WTL: JoandCompany's sixpence brooch

My offering to the PW ladies is my sixpence brooch.  If anyone would like to use it please let me know.


Silver Sixpence in your Shoe. [for luck] Historically (i.e., dating back to the reign of Elizabeth the First in the 16th century), the Lord of the Manor where the bride lived would give a sixpence as a wedding gift. Later, the custom evolved to that of the parents of the bride presenting a sixpence as a dowry gift. Since Victorian times, however, it has become more of a good luck charm to bring wealth and happiness to the marriage.


By the way, the sixpence is traditionally placed in the bride's left shoe.

I don't know if it'd be enough time, but mb we could work something out...


Could I be added to the list for 9/24/2011 (it's pretty close to ajfisher)? That is such an amazing brooch! And I love that it completes the old saying :)

I could put it in the mail for you on the 12th (or have my SIL do it if we leave for our HM on the 11th).

Woot! I don't think I've ever been so excited about a coin! Well...maybe those dollar coins when I was a kid, but that's because I thought I was rich with my $5 allowance.

Thanks ajfisherkalenalena I added you to the list, I was very excited about it also.  I didn't like the idea of having to sew or tape one inside my shoe.
