Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man exemplifies the blend of art and science that took place during the Renaissance. This design was part of a study on human proportion, which da Vinci suspected was analogous to the workings of the universe. The golden ratio can also be found in the Vitruvian Man.

Approximate Dimensions:
-Pendant Diameter: 1" (2.5cm)
-Cord Length: 18" (46cm)
-Hand-Made Copper Clasp & Findings

Please Note: My pendants are made out of quarters. They are not very heavy.


You won't find another pendant like this on Etsy. This was originally a U.S. Quarter that has been torched, hammered, cut, filed, and dropped into a jar of acid. Etching the coin reveals its copper core, resulting in a striking display.

What is special about this process is that the coin can be prepared to perfection, but once it goes into the acid I have no control over it. This adds an element of unpredictability to my work, which means that every piece is truly unique.

A great deal of time, energy, and love (and occasionally some frustration and cursing) goes into the crafting of each and every pendant.
