Making Coins

Making Coins

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.
