Coin Impressed Creations – Coin Hammered Jewelry

Belgian Coin Copper Earring

This one is the Belgian Franc, Belgique!

I have been hammering lots and lots of coins recently! I was lucky to have someone in Europe mail me a ton of coins, in addition to the ones I had from Finland, Ireland and Estonia. Now I have a whole collection from Switzerland to Greece and UK. The creation of these poppies is a time consuming process and results are not guaranteed…but, I just like to play with this idea. Have been using both copper and brass as the base metal, using my disc cutter has been a bit of a challenge since it’s not the best kind (things get stuck a lot), but you learn patience 🙂
