The anchor comes in many shapes and sizes. Originally a rock on a rope, this tool has also been made out of sacks of gravel or sand, and even logs filled with lead. The anchor has evolved to the more modern design in order to better meet the needs of various water craft. The Admiralty or Fisherman pattern is the most iconic anchor, and has become an important symbol for people of both land and sea.

Approximate Dimensions:
-Pendant Diameter: 1"
-Chain Length: 18"

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.


No laws were broken in creating this jewelry.

Title 18 U.S.C., Section 331 states:
- Whoever fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates, impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the mints of the United States, or any foreign coins which are by law made current or are in actual use or circulation as money within the United States.... Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

The key word in this section is "fraudulently." Coins were altered to make each piece, but not in a fraudulent manner. After being altered the coins are displayed, marketed, and classified as jewelry, which is in adherence to the law.
