Let's talk today about how to make a jewellery of coins: I will make a pendant. But, if you want, you can refine the design at your taste and make coin bracelet or earrings, cufflinks — all what you want.
For example, I took a Russian 5 kopeks coin. You can take your favourite silver coin even with one side damaged, it will not be visible.
So let's begin.
Materials and tools
- doming block with punches
- soldering iron
- metallic eyelet of any shape
- cord or chain
Put a coin in a suitable mold, bend it with slight blows of a hammer.
That's what I got.
It's time for soldering!
Solder the eyelet to the inner side of the coin ( if you make the bracelet then two eyelets).
And the 5 kopeks jewellery is ready. Now you can dim the coin with patina and give it a vintage look (I didn't do that).
Now string the pendant and all looks fine and cheerful.
Please do not judge strictly.
Looking forward to your feedback!
