Roman Around Coin Necklace

Our friends the ancient Roman were innovators for many firsts- concrete, welfare, bound books and newspapers. The Roman manufacture of coins may have first occurred at the temple of Juno Moneta, and hence she became the personification of money and origin of the word “mint.”  And my metalsmithing adventure continues…this ancient bronze coin dating between 500-27bce seems to depict an ancient god or goddess, an archer?  The free form handmade Sterling Silver setting mimics the coin’s shape and the handmade nature of coins from that era.  This little gem is joined with Sterling Silver chain and findings.  Setting for the other 3 coins are in process.  Buy this necklace here: Roman Around Coin Necklace
