I know I have posted about my coin jewelry before, but I’m doing it again. I can’t help it! I love these things. Every time a shipment of coins arrives, it’s such a fun treasure hunt to find the really interesting ones to use as the centerpiece of a necklace.
I like the bigger, ornate ones a lot, but the ones that really get my blood pumping are the animal coins. Just look at this lion in the photo. He’s wearing a crown and looks so regal. These were some of my favorites from the last shipment I got and I oxidized the shiny, new looking ones to give them some character and then polished just the raised portion of the design. It really brings out the details and makes them pop.
This necklace design is called Vintage Currency. (thanks to my 10-year-old son for the name). You can see them HERE. Or if you are a local, I’m doing a trunk show at All Tucked In in Bountiful, UT on November 7th. They are even better in person!
