Pressed Penny Magic by Kim Lawton

My last article was about Pressed or Elongated Coins.  The topic came up because I was searching for things to do with the few pressed coins I have collected over the years.  They represent memories that I want to hold on to and I just did not know how I wanted to do that….short of carrying them in my change purse as a lucky memento.   So I did an internet search and I found so much more, I think I have even become a pressed coin fan!

Did you know you can purchase Pressed Coin holders at many of the Gift Shops around the World?  Look for one that compliments your vacation memories.  I found many craft and storage ideas for Pressed Coins.  Pinterest had pictures of earrings, necklaces and bracelets all made with a little craftiness and cherished Pressed Coins.  Some were complicated and required a hole to be put in the coin.  It could be seen that one’s imagination would be the only requirement.  I did find one very interesting option that would not require very much creativity or skill on my part but was quite a creative invention.  Pennybandz!

 

Pennybandz hold the pressed coins in either a bracelet or necklace to shine for all to see!  The necklaces come in various colors, the bracelets in various colors and sizes.  The sopping site is http://pennybandz.com where the various colors and options can be seen.

The site explains the reason we all need a Pennybandz, we all have a pressed penny we want to show off and use to keep memories alive or just to use as a conversation started!  It explains their mission, they even give a portion of each sale to charity!  Gotta love that!  The colors are fun and the prices are reasonable with free shipping on purchases over $10.  Once I received my bracelet and necklace and cleaned my pennies, I found it very easy to insert the coins in the Pennybandz pendant and bracelet.  I cannot wait to wear them!  Please check the Pennybandz site and see if you can share some magic by pressing a penny and wearing it in a Pennybandz!
