    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.

    I´d been thinking over the idea suggested by @Gary Gross but wasn´t feeling inspired so I made these to dust of my trinket-fu

    Then I decided to try the shield shape on a piece simpler than a ring so I selected a suitable coin and made a lapel pin -you can´t get much simpler, but I´m pleased how it turned out

    It´s open-sided, with brass standoffs and copper rivets

    I like all of it!! I'm particularly interested in the shield without the pin.

    I just made this on request for a cycling customer.

    Although the subjet was nothing I had previously considered I found the design almost instantly.
