Carving on coins as jewelry art
Art carving on coins is a popular way of making coins as jewelry pieces – beautiful pendants. The authors of these works are not limited to simple drilling the holes in the coin, but go in their work further by using a jewelry jig (with different types of blades) to cut the protruding part of the coin. Most artists use an existing image on a coin, cutting the space around it, eventually getting an openwork pattern inside a circular frame. Others prefer to cut their own shapes. In the photos, all coins are shown in large size, so you can consider and evaluate all the details of the fine jewelry work. Many artists who make these ornaments, sell their work online on Etsy, eBay or their own personal websites, turning a single cent or penny into dollars or pounds.
