I’m designing a necklace and I wanted to hang five silver coins along the front of the necklace. I use actual coins quite a bit, but for this necklace I wanted to make the coins. I wanted coins that looked as though they came from a distant land and another time. Coins that looked like treasures buried long ago and weathered and worn by time. This is what I came up with. I love how they look and they feel wonderful to hold. They feel like real coins only softer at the edges.
I need to start on the necklace and I think I’ll make earrings using one of the designs shown above. I could even do a charm bracelet featuring the coins.
