“Coined” Metal Button Jewelry

“Coined” Metal Button Jewelry

When I was a little girl, I loved looking through my mother’s jewelry box. In fact, I still enjoy doing that whenever I visit! I clearly remember one of my favorite pieces of hers- it was a bracelet made of layered old coins, sandwiched between two chains. I had also been a quasi-coin collector as a kid, so the bracelet really struck my fancy.

As I reminisced about my mom’s old bracelet, I stumbled across an artisan who has created a gorgeous line of jewelry using smashed metal buttons…which, ironically, resemble old coins! So I give her all the credit for this amazing DIY idea- an idea I instantly fell in love with.
