This choker looks pretty cool with the alternating silver-gold color scheme, and it has a heft to it that I like. Not to mention, if I ever lose my wallet in Japan I'll at least have ~$10 on me for a phone call or a burger or something.
It's really easy to make; here's how it works.
Step 1: Materials
- Coins, with holes in the center. Preferably two different colors
- Candle (beeswax if you've got it, I didn't)
- (Scissors and matches and household stuff)
The most difficult material to find (for Americans) is most likely the perforated coins. I suggest checking out local arcades for tokens, or getting out the old drill (or dremel!) and defacing some currency.
