This week's Oldies but Goodies Theme Challenge is COINS. The challenge is to post something that includes a COIN. I hope Irith shows some of her fabulous coin creations. I don’t think I have anything to show this week.
Go through your stash and post a picture in this thread, that pertains to the theme. It can be something you made yesterday or something you made 5 years ago. We encourage you to post as many items as you want. Can't make it much simpler.
We hope to see lots of creative pics of your pieces that include a COIN.
At the end of the challenge Cat will make a collage from the entries (at least one picture from each member) and post it on her blog to share what a talented crowd this is! She will link back to your shop, blog or other pages from your signature. If you don't want your piece/s to be included, please note that in your post.
We'd love to have more members participate in this easy, fun challenge. Won't you join us?
I don't have any jewelry made of coins, but I'll try to make something before the week is over. Years ago, I made a coin necklace for Margie (you guys must remember Margie - she was a member of the old forum) because I sent her something that had five cents postage due so she had to pay the post office a nickel to get her package. To make it up to her, I made a pendant for her out of a nickel. It was our ongoing joke.
And, it got more interesting because the package was lost in the mail for weeks. I'd given up hope of her receiving it, when she let me know it had finally arrived - on her birthday of all things!
I'm not sure I have a photo of it, but I'll look through my files.

Irith, your coin rings are simply fabulous. I think this challenge will definitely turn into a spotlight for you!
I wanted to post the first pendants I made with coins from different countries. A friend sent me some more (and I have all US states somewhere, too - that I got in a trade for a piece), I should really do something with them. None of the pictures would download because of an "internal server error", though. I'm going to try again later.
