Nautilus Necklace. Acid Etched Coin Pendant Made From A U.S. Quarter.

You won't find another pendant like this on all the world wide webs. This was originally a U.S. Quarter that has been torched, hammered, cut, filed, and dropped into a jar of acid. Etching the coin reveals its copper core, resulting in a striking display. What's special about this process is that the coin can be prepared to perfection, but once it goes into the acid I have no control over it. This adds an element of unpredictability to my work, which means that every piece is truly unique.
A great deal of time, energy, and love (and occasionally some frustration and cursing) goes into the crafting of each and every pendant.
