I spent some time teaching silversmithing to high school students in Shanghai several years ago.
One day, I was heading home from work in a taxi and passed what looked like a really cool street market. On a whim, I stopped the driver, hopped out of the cab, and wandered the stalls until I found these beautiful old coins. My bartering skills were strong but my Mandarin skills were weak, so the entire exchange was hilarious, which made the final purchase all the more precious.
Hand cast from an antique coin Kat found on her travels, this pendantmakes a stunning essential piece for the adventurer in you.
