More details about this item

Papa New Guinea 1 toea “bronze” (U.S. dime - size) “Mounted in a gold filled rope type bezel” on 18” chain. To make this beautiful cut coin pendant necklace, first a small hole was drilled in the coin. Then, a very fine jeweler's saw blade is inserted through the hole and worked around the coin's design, (by hand) cutting away the background. This leaves the coin's figure floating inside it’s outer edge (rim). The figure is then selectively layered (by hand) in Brilliant Gold Silver. Each work of art comes complete, on 14K gold layered and in a nice jewelry box. C122rb
