    I LOVE ANCIENT COINS...25 years ago, an old roman coin
    was placed in my hand and I was captivated. I loved the irregular
    edge and the patina that can only come from being touched
    and worn over ages of time...After I designed my first piece
    of ancient coin jewelry, I went to NY and found a coin dealer
    and have been getting coins from him ever since! When I
    get the coins they are covered in dirt and you can barely see
    the etchings. We take each one and polish them ever so
    gently so that the design is revealed and the patina is
    glimmering. There is something so inspiring to me about pairing
    something old with new precious metals and pearls--the
    delight of unexpected detail and textures. I always design
    with the edges of the coins showing, I like the the
    distressed markings. Byzantine and 2-300 AD Roman coins
    are my favorite, and I choose the ones that are worn and
    imperfect. So unlike being a coin collector,
    I am a coin treasure maker--giving them a new life and a new story!
    This is what most of the coIns look like when we get them!
    It is so hard to see the detail and they are gritty and dirty.
    Then we use a green silicone wheel on our sanding machine
    and lift out just certain details of the coins so that you see the
    beautiful patina of the bronze. It is truly so exciting to see the
    coin come to life. Making the patina glimmer like this brings the
    coins to a more modern look which plays off
    my silver and gold metal pieces.
    These cupped 600 AD Byzantine coins are my
