5 francs necklace

silver, coral, turquoise

Yes, the focal was an old silver 5 francs coin from France. And yes, I introduced it to my favorite hammer!

Wow! I love the texture that the coin has now. I wouldn't have known that it was a coin before. That took lots of hammering, I'm sure.

Le résultat est plus joli qu'une pièce de 5 francs, et puis de toutes façons ces pièces ne servent plus à rien... vivent les marteaux ;-)
