Roller Chain Collar/Gorget/Choker |
Coin Wrap Pendants |
The original of this item, shown to the left, was made as a holiday gift for a friend. I liked the pentacle design on one side and wanted to turn the coin into a pendant, without drilling a hole in it. After many hours of thought, the idea came to me that I should somehow frame the coin in maille. I worked all night on designs and it wasn't until about ten o'clock the next morning that I had something done that I was satisfied with. The maille holds the coin tightly in place and there is no danger of the coin falling out. I have been wearing one I made for myself since December '01 and the coin shows no signs of coming loose from the wrap. The maille is made from Stainless Steel. The coin in the one to the left is a coin from The Empire Cherifien, now known as Morocco. Because of the nature of maille and round metal rings, designs for wraps for different sized coins may vary slightly. As shown in the picture, one side of coin is covered by maille, and the other is left exposed.
