From what I can see those coins in your braclet are joined using a braze, its similar to solder in the way its applied (with gas and a flux) but much stronger.

I've never seen a braclet like that before. Its a really interesting idea. Do you know if it was bought, or made for her as a one off?

It would be super easy to make, I might try and make one like that myself sometime. : )

Pickledkitty: half of those "facts" about coke were disproved on mythbusters.The steak just turned really brown and smelled rancid. However it will clean pennies.

Speaking of mythbusters - they put a penny on a railway track once, ran over it with a train (the people who owned the train had no issue with them borrowing it to see what happens if you put a penny on a railway track, which kinda indicates what result they got...) Not surprisingly, all that happened was the penny got flattened.

I remember seeing those soldered coin bracelets everywhere several years ago. Also at little craft fairs and at touristy places where they carry random items that have nothing to do with tourism.  Tongue

This is kind of related-
In jewelry making class last year I always finished projects too quickly so the teacher let me make up little things to do to keep me busy. One day I was sick of the usual projects and wanted to practice detailed metal sawing so I grabbed some pennies and cut out the building on the back. Of course we didn't have clamps small enough to hold it still so I ended up with little saw marks on my thumbs. I wanted to solder them to other metal but it didn't work. I wish I kept some of them though, they were just neat to have.
Great crafts Smiley

I grew bored in my gas welding lesson this week, so I decide to replicate coca colas bracelet in pence pieces. It was very quick and easy to do, heres a picture...




Apologies for the poor quality.
