Currency Necklace

I have been going through my drawers and collections in an attempt to be more organized in the New Year.  Last night, I found this old coin from some of my travels.  I suspect it’s a Japanese yen, but I’m not sure.

I strung it on a jewelry chain to make a quick necklace.

A worldly necklace.

Don’t have any old coins like this one?  Just use metal washers.  They can even be painted and sealed to make unique jewelry.  Separate them with metal nuts for an industrial look or beads for added color!

The coin and a few small washers. Washers are available in all sizes at the hardware store.

I love the shine of the washers. You can't beat the price of this jewelry!
