Illinois Quarter Pendant
Item in photos is the exact piece for sale, ready to ship!
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 Illinois quarter pendant. This quarter was issued in one year only, 2003, as a part of the "State Quarters Program".
This piece features a young Abraham Lincoln within the outline of the state. A farm scene and the Chicago skyline appear on the left and to the right of the state’s outline. Twenty-one stars border the coin, signifying Illinois as the 21st state to be admitted into the Union
I solder on a bail that I make from a copper-nickel quarter.
This is a copper-nickel coin. It comes on a free stainless steel ballchain (Size #3).
This pendant measures 25mm in height. The coin is 2mm thick.
