I saw yours on etsy a while back and fell in love with it.  That was before I found this group (last night).  I made one (hope you don't mind) and a matching penny charm bracelet and matching penny earrings.  When I wear them I literally get stopped and questioned about them. 

As to legality, it's Section 331, title 18 (or is that Title 18, section 331? Smiley, and it's on the US Gov't mint page.  It's legal to do this.

Anyway, you've got a hit here, at least with me.  Thank you so much for sharing!

I know that if you soak the pennies in vinegar or lemon juice for about 10-15 minutes, they will be all sparkly again.  If you do this on a regular basis, the rub-off shouldn't be much if any...  just a thought.  It only takes a second to take it off and drop it in a container with vinegar in it!!  I LOVE your idea and think it's da coolest!!!  I would like to show my chain maille group a picture, would that be okay?  They would get a big kick out of this!!!  Keep up the beautiful work!

wow thanks guys for your comments Smiley

it actually looks even better on a person (my model is super skinny-- she has no back -- so she doesn't fill it out well). and it doesn't quite touch a real person's boob (at least it doesn't reach mine).

about turning skin green... thanks for bringing it up! i didn't think of that as pennies that i've worn haven't stained my skin but i'm thinking that coating the backs might help? i'll research it.

One other question...  you used a dremel?  And what kind of bit did you use in the dremel (or other machine...).  I am so in love!  Also, make sure if you use the lemon juice/vinegar that you don't leave it in more than 10 or 15 minutes...  it will eventually eat the coating off!

thanks for the advice rainbowsmurfet! i'll look into this for other creations Smiley

as for what i used: i actually used a regular old hand drill with a very small bit. i know that doesn't help a whole lot but really the tiny bit was part of a small set of small bits that i had lying around. the pack doesn't specify size so i can't even tell you how small...

Daaaang!!!  You have patience!  To drill all those holes with a hand drill?!?  That's amazing.  I am really impressed!  And that was very helpful information.  Smiley

No, it's not illegal.  Go to the US Government Mint website.  It's section 331, title 18 that concerns defacing monies.  But, in a nutshell, it's not illegal.  Isn't that great!!   Smiley
