Vintage Coin Bracelet
Vintage coin or special coin
Drill and Small Drill Bit
11 inch (30cm) of Leather strapping
This Vintage coin bracelet is a very funky way to show off some antique coins. You could also make this with a coin from a holiday or a memento coin.
To start with you will need to drill the holes into your coin. Drill one hole on either side of the coin using a small drill bit.
Attach your leather using the crimp ends by placing the ends of the leather into the spring and clamping down on the wire with a pair or pliers.
Attach this loop to the hole in the coin. Do this again for the other side.
Next, measure the leather around your wrist before adding another clamp at either end of the leather as shown in the picture and attaching a jewelry clasp so you can fasten it.
If you do not want to use a clasp you can simply tie it onto your wrist.
