How to Make Jewelry With Coin Pendants

Constructing jewellery from pendants and chain requires only a few simple techniques and tools. By making your own jewellery, you not only save money on store-bought accessories, but you also supplement your accessory collection with personalised items that match your style. With a little practice, you can transform coins from your travels into jewellery keepsakes or make a necklace from everyday pennies.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

CoinsScrap plywoodHammerNailClampDremel1/16-inch drill bitBeeswaxSafety maskFileChainJump rings, 1 per coin plus 2Chain-nose pliersRound-nose pliersClasp

Instructions

1 Place your coin on a piece of scrap plywood and make a small indentation with a hammer and nail in the place where you want your hole. Repeat for each coin.

2 Clamp a coin to the plywood and drill the hole by applying light pressure to the trigger of your Dremel. Thoroughly wax your drill bit to minimise friction and always wear safety glasses while drilling. Flip the coin over and file away any sharp metal bits. Repeat for each coin.

3 Cut a length of chain about a 1/2 inch shorter than you want your necklace to be. A necklace dipping just below the collar bone should measure between 17 and 19 inches.

4 Open a jump ring with your two sets of pliers and string it through the hole at the top of your first coin. Pass the open jump ring through a link on the chain and close it securely. Position your coins evenly along the chain as desired.

5 Attach the final link on either end of the chain to the small loop on both halves of the clasp with a jump ring.

Tips and warnings

Cut three pieces of chain in different lengths for a multistrand layered necklace.

Attach coin pendants to links on a charm bracelet with jump rings.

Small jewellery pieces are a choking hazard for young children.

Purchase spare drill bits in case of breakage during drilling.
