Different coins from various countries have really interesting patterns and designs. Artist Micah Adams removed these embossed patterns to create trinkets, knick knacks, accessories, and other jewelry which he sells on Etsy.
“I was making small assemblages from things I’d collected over the years, tiny things like toys, bottle caps, beach finds and even teeth,” Adams tells Colossal.
“Then I cast them in metal. They were like tiny bronzes or miniature monuments. That lead me to look for tiny things that were already metal that I could use. So I looked at coins and their designs for things I could cut-out.”
