Create a fashion-forward ''found objects'' look with this sparkling coin necklace. With plenty of eye-catching glitter and a graceful drape, this project is sure to produce compliments. Our own Stephanie Girdlestone takes you through the process.
Select the desired coins for this project. Note: Coins that are lightweight and thinner are easier to punch holes in for hanging.
Using wire cutters, trim the pin on the bead holder to about 1/4 inch. Place the pearl onto the pin to see if this will be a good length. If the pearl doesn't sit flush; trim the pin a little further.
Open the jumprings on the end of the curb chain and remove the clasp. Replace the claps with the decorative coin clasp.
Simply cut chain to desired length and attach with jumprings to the main chain, about 6 inches down from the clasp on each side.
Using the steel hole punch, punch a hole on each side of the coins.
