These Leaves are Cropped Out From Coins

Toronto-based artist Micah Adams loves to make tiny assemblages from tiny things that he was able to collect over the years. These tiny things would range from “toys, bottle caps, beach finds and even teeth”, which he would cast 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.”

And cut out designs from coins he did by using a jeweler’s saw.

Back when Canadian coins were silver, there was a man at a gun-show who was selling necklace pendants made from quarters and dimes, that is, moose or the sailing-ship, inside the circular coin. He said each one took several hours with a tiny saw to complete. I bought my wife a moose, and she loved it, wore it for years.
