I've had the absolute pleasure of setting a variety of ancient coins into custom pieces of jewelry for people.
Some of these people are hunters going out with metal detectors and unearthing these treasures for the first time since they were used as currency, others are ship wreck fanatics tracking down sunken treasures from hundreds of years ago, and some are from avid collectors of all things beautiful that wish for these coins to be seen and worn, rather than stuffed in a drawer somewhere.
There is no denying the wonder and story these ancient coins from civilizations long gone elicit. From mysterious ruins with half told stories, to ones of Greece and Rome that we know well, I love to imagine the items these coins purchased in their day. How much work went into earning this coin, was it ever given as a gift, what shops did it go through, what influential people of history might have crossed paths with it?!
But the story doesn't end there! It has entered MY hands! It has entered MY creative domain and I have the honor and privilege of working with it!
I have made far more pieces with younger, more common coins, but I felt that these relics deserved to be set apart for you to see in this mini gallery I curated for you.
If you have a treasure you'd like set into a wearable piece of art, call, e-mail, or text me and we can set things into motion!
