I'm always losing my guitar picks. This caused me to think about all the things I can make a guitar pick out of, I thought this one up when trying to find materials to make a metal guitar pick.
Please, take your time when cutting the pick out, this will yield better results and will afford much safer conduct.

Step 1: Preperation
Here's what you're going to need:
- A Dremel Tool (a belt grinder will also work)
- Dremel cut-off wheels & Sanding disks
- A coin
- Safety Glasses
Before you start, you're going to want to mark the coin, so you know what to cut off. You can do this by placing a regular guitar pick over it, and coloring in the edges.
Step 2: Cutting
FIRST! Put on your safety glasses, I experienced many pieces of flying metal when cutting out the coin. So, unless you would like small copper bits as a permanent part of your eye, wear safety glasses!
All you need to do is cut around the black, then clean up the edges with the flat edge of the cutting disk.
Step 3: Finshing
After you have all of the black cut off, use the sanding disk to clear off all the sharp edges.
Congratulation, If you put in the time and effort, you should have a nice new guitar pick to test out! This could also make an excellent pendent for a necklace or bracelet. Or a great gift for other guitarists!
