  • What a great variety of projects you could make with these penny treasures, Carol! The first thing that popped into my head was a tiered necklace with pennies as dangles, kind of like my Two Tier Bib Necklace Tutorial. However, with pennies, that kind of necklace might get uncomfortably heavy.

    I’m looking forward to other suggestions! 🙂

  • My sister collects the pennies you run through a mill and it stamps an image on them. I made her a dangle charm bracelet and matching drop earrings. I added wire wrapped bead charms between the pennies for a pop of color and she loved it.

  • Lora L Cotton says:

    I’ll expand on Cindi’s suggestion above and say a charm bracelet. Turn each penny into a charm with a small hole and jump ring, then add to a larger link curb type bracelet. This way not only do you get to wear your memories, its a great conversation started!
