Going Global - Turkmen Coin Pendants
I have a slight obsession with Turkmen jewelry. I love to wear it, but I also love to take the pendants and coins and use them in my artwork. They make wonderful focal points on a book cover or on a small mixed media panel. Try one in your own work today!

Kuchi Coin Pendants - Dark Blue Stone ($1.95/ea)
I've long been fascinated with these beautiful coin pendants - each has been handmade using a real coin as the base, and then the bezel and bail are each hand-soldered. The bails are all different - you can see how the maker used the metal scraps available at the time, and the bezels are all custom sized to the stone used on each pendant.
Each one is different - different coins and sizes, but most measure around 1.25" in diameter.
Kuchi Coin Pendants - No Stone
These are the same coin pendants as above, only without the stones. I love to use these as building blocks to layer other bits of jewelry, stones, beads, or molded clay pieces on top as I creating interesting focal points for my artwork.
Each coin is different and sizing will vary, but most are around 1 1/8" in diameter and you will receive three.
