Vietnamese Coins and Others

I really like this!

I purchased the coins at a shop near the local Mall right next to "Sushi Revolution" (yum yum), drilled little holes in the coins that didn't already have holes in them, and wired on loops for stringing. The spacer beads are from Ghana, purchased at "Dava Bead and Trade" in Portland.

The center coin, with three young women shown, is one of the first coins struck by the government of Viet Nam after the French left.

The very left hand coin is actually a transportation token issued by the State of Washington.

This necklace makes a nice jingly sound and is adjustable.

$50 - c. 2009 -
