The Way to Collect Your Silver Dollar

Chad sent me a link to these jewelry pieces made by a Japanese company called Phenomenon Beyond Description, they are incredible, what a great way to use silver, and it's a recycled material, how genius! The designer only uses silver dollar coins made between 1960-1964 because the silver content is higher. I am just amazed how these coins are bent into such beautiful shapes, and cutting the negative space out of a coin to emphasize the bald eagle. I really love the sculpted skull ring, especially how the eagle's head is perfectly placed on top of the bridge of the nose. images: pbd, arknets.co.jp
