Personalized Penny Necklace

I handcrafted this design using a U.S. penny. I, first, polished the coin and then drilled a hole through it to hang it from later. I, then, carefully and with as much precision as possible, hand-stamped the letters and designs onto the coin. To give it a distinct effect, I hammered the penny into a perfectly-domed shape. I handmade a small ring to attach to the penny and soldered it closed. I, then, applied a darkening solution that blackens the entire penny into an almost unrecognizable coin. I, carefully, hand-polished the penny a second time, making sure to leave the nooks and crannies untouched so that the newly-darkened details stood out against the high-polished finish. Finally, I attached the penny to a fine chain that I finished off with a clasp, which I soldered closed, and added a dainty logo tag to.

Although it is a lengthy and messy process, it is well worth the conquest, as this technique gives the design a charming vintage look that will never go out of style.  

This design is visually stunning from, both, the frontside as well as the backside. However, if you prefer for me to use the backside of the penny as the frontside, please let me know in the ‘Note to Seller’. Also, if you wish for a particular year, just send me a message requesting the year and I will do my best to accommodate your request. Depending on the age of the penny you desire, there may be a small fee applied to the cost as older pennies are more difficult to come by and there might be a treasure hunt ensued. ;) If you want a Canadian penny, instead, just let me know in the 'Note to Seller'. However, if you want a specific year for it, let me know and I'll check my foreign coin inventory for that year.
