The Penny Necklace and the Birthstone Ring

The other day a co-worker asked me to make his wife, Penny a necklace for Valentine's Day made from a US Penny. He gave me free range on how it was to be created so this is what I came up with:

Then today I went to a local bead shop and took a Sterling Silver wire birthstone ring class. The teacher was horrible, but by following the directions I was able to figure out what I needed to do. I made a synthetic emerald birthstone ring. I think it turned out really good but I think the more practice I get the better they will turn out. I think this has opened a whole new world for me!

Both items are stunning Sherri. You really have a talent there.

They are both very beautiful, but you really outdid yourself with that graceful, elegant ring. Wow!

Sherri, they are gorgeous! Love them. How sweet of the co-worker to have that penny set in a necklace. It must have a special meaning.

By the way, I wish you lived closer and could come and join the party! :)

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
