D.C. Duke Ellington Quarter Pendant
Hand cut using a bow drill and a jeweler's saw, I cut away the negative space to make the image pop on this beautiful District of Columbia silver, quarter pendant. This quarter was issued in one year only, 2009, as a part of the "U.S. Territories Quarters Program".
This coin is 90% (.900) silver. These were never in circulation, only available as a collector's item. The coins in circulation are copper-nickel.
This piece depicts jazz legend, Duke Ellington sitting at a piano. The inscription of the motto, "Justice For All" and "Duke Ellington" are also on the quarter. Born in Washington D.C., Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington was an American composer, pianist, and leader of a jazz orchestra, which he led from 1923 until his death over a career spanning more than six decades.
Comes on a stainless steel, double jump ring with a free stainless steel ballchain (Size #3).
This pendant measures 25mm in height and 25mm width. The coin is 2mm thick. It weighs .2 ounce.
I can make this as a pendant (pictured). Or I can put a larger jump ring on it for a keychain. I can also make into a memento/placeholder without a hole. This can be used as a golfball marker, a lucky coin, etc.
