    I was looking for a way of turning two-toned 1 and 2 euro coins into rings, and this is what I came up with

    Turned out pretty nice, but drilling the hole for the rivet was, say, difficult.
    As you can see, the rivets are off-centered on the underside -and this is my best after messing up two coins

    While rummaging through a drawer I found eight cut, drilled and textured link plates I had forgotten.
    I rivetted them, then I remember´d I had some lacing leather somewhere.
    To finish I made a bead from a thick brass washer -first try at fileworking.
