Proverbs are fun.  Wink

Oxidized both the penny and the sterling silver disk and then I polished them.

What do you all think? I'm new to this kind of stuff.

My mom used to always sing this song called "26 cents" whose lyrics say something like "Here's a penny for your thoughts, a quarter for the call, and all of your momma's love." So it's kind of an ode to my mom. I'm a suck.

Anyway I have another one waiting to be oxidized that is a quarter with a sterling disk saying "for the call." -> Too bad it's 50 cents to use a payphone now. Ha!

It would also look really pretty with an old wheat penny. I like the stamped pendants, what do you use to stamp them?

It's neat but I thought it was illegal to deface government property... I hope you don't get arrested!

Okay... so it is illegal, but they don't really prosecute for it so you're in the clear! And you can still tell that it's a penny so... whatever.
