I exchanged notes for coins and I love It!

When I walked into Monti Urban Market last week, I did not expect to come out with so many coins. I had intended to do some window shopping, without touching anything, just looking and coveting from a distant:-)

As it turned out…

I ended up spending some notes and in return, I got myself some precious coins 🙂

I have always been enchanted by the art of making jewellery from coins. When I saw this stall with coins collected from all over the world, I could not resist the urge to get closer.

I watched the lady use a technique that brings out even the finest detail of the coins without altering the original design. The husband attending to customers and assisting her in the development of all the tiny details. Everyone notices immediately that they are a perfect pair of artists.

I quickly requested to see the collection of coins they have (if any) from Kenya and Italy:-) I was impressed at the Italian lira and Mzee Jommo Kenyatta Coin made in the early 70’s. They immediately started the painstaking working process and assemblage giving birth to my eclectic jewellery pieces that have never left my neck since then.

What was meant to be a pass by, turned out to be an hour of gazing at each and every coin and even making an order of a certain coin that I would like to add on my coin jewellery collection.

It is amazing to see pendants, bracelets, rings, earings, cufflinks and much more made from this technique.

In the words of Jenie Kwon of Jennie Kwon Designs, ‘Jewellery has the power to be this one little thing that can make you feel unique.’

If you are someone who looks for uniqueness in jewellery, coinwork should be your go to option.

I am really happy I passed by Monti. If you are passing by Rome or passing by before christmas, spare an hour or two and pass by the market. Check out here, it is open from 10 a.m to 8 p.m until 24th December.

Love,
