Two More Cut Coins

Here are two more cut coin pendants I made as Christmas presents for my other two nieces. They are made from pre-1920 threepences with their first initial in place of the '3' on the tail, like the first one I made.

Looking at the magnified image here, I can see I didn't do a thorough enough job of cleaning the metal polish residue out of the nooks and crannies of this one (there aren't really as many tabs connecting the wreath to the outer ring as there appear to be).

On this one I made the loose attachment ring from thinner wire than the fixed one, which I think looks better than when they are both the same gauge, particularly since the gauge of the wire the chain is made from is thinner still.

There's still a few flaws visible under magnification, but they look pretty good with the naked eye, and on the whole I think I'm getting better (and faster) at making these.
