Custom Name Necklace with Rhinestone Letters

hand made, Flattened and Hand Painted Penny Earrings with Carnelian Agate Beads



In stock



This pair of earrings are made using discontinued copper pennies. The process I use is quite unique and involves many steps. The first step is to create a mechanical die (male/female) using hard metals from coins, watch parts, wire...... I then emboss a softer metal (copper pennies) using a rolling mill. Each time a roll a new coin the design on the die changes every so slightly so that no two will ever be exactly the same, you will notice this with earring sets :) The last two stages really enhance the design, I hand paint each one using a range of color then coat them twice for protection. I have spent years experimenting, making mistakes and having ah ha moments, I hope this explains a bit on how my work is created but if you have any other questions at all please don't hesitate to ask., carnelian agate
