Real World coin cut outs. First a small hole is drilled in the coin, then a very fine jewelers saw blade is inserted through the hole and worked around the coins design, (by hand) cutting away the background. Thus leaving the coins figure floating inside it's outer edge (rim). The figure is then selectively layered (by hand) in Brilliant Gold & Silver.
These coins are then made into unique pairs of earrings with Sterling Silver wires and placed in a nice jewelry box.
