One day I decided to turn my stash of Italian Lire and US coins into beautiful pendants and earrings using 14 kt gold filled bezel wire, chain, and earrings. I also have a lot of other foreign coins collected over many years of traveling that have been made into pendants.

As it turns out, these coins became very popular especially my Italian Lire and old US coin jewelry.

Special gold filled channel wire is used for making the bezels for the coins. This wire is perfect for fitting my coins. As for the earrings, I use gold filled ball and post earrings with extra large ear nuts for security and comfort.
