Ok! So heres the dealy-o....
I saw these really cool coin bracelets at a gem and mineral show that came to town. I immediately thought of my mother in-law...she loves wheat pennies and antiques in general, but I can't afford to spent $170 for a bracelet for her! Plus I have lots of coins that would be neat to use for one
I have searched and searched to try and find something like what is shown on this site...

http://www.lunaparc.com/miniatures/coin_bracelet.htm

to no avail.

I don't want to drill holes in the coins, which I have seen a lot of.

What I really need to know is what it is called. I can find tons of singular coin bezels but none that can be linked....and the ones already in a bracelet were about 80 bucks and were only one size coin.
I really like the ones shown on the site above.

If anyone could please point me in the right direction I will be your best friend!

How are you at soldering?

It looks like the bezels in the picture you are showing have soldered connectors which have a single rivet through them (there must be a hole through which to pass the rivet). 

What I was thinking was if you can get a single bezel, see if you can get the single bezels, to solder rings to two opposing edges, and use jumo rings to connect bezels, to connect and allow for flexibility.  Understand?

Yes... I think this would work! And I just realized I have a hot knife that doubles as a soldering iron!
