Just a few recent peices. All sterling silver except the pennies of course. The bracelets are all hand-made from the links to the clasps. Let me know what you think!

As long as the coin is still recognizable and that it will not be re-used as currency. I'm not even sure how much of this still applies as they have those tourist coin machines that totally morph the penny and stamp it with something.

It's not a drill bit. It's more of a mini hand-cranked drill press that I bought at a local tool shop. I don't even know what it's called!
