Description

This necklace is a piece of history! It is created with a rare, un-circulated 200 lire Italian coin that was minted in 1980.

Issued as part of an FAO program "International Woman's Year" this coin depicts Dr. Maria Montessori on one side and a woman reading with a child on the reverse.

The description reads: VALORIZZAZIONE DELLA DONNA which translates to "The valorization (enhancement) of women."

The coin has been set with sterling silver wire and features a vintage, glass, Nienhuis Montessori bead hanging at the bottom.

While the coin was created with the side of Maria Montessori facing front, you can also reverse the necklace by turning the necklace to the other side and gently spinning the coin so that the picture faces up. i.e. if you have one side facing up, the opposite side of the coin is facing down, but the coin is loose enough to gently spin within the silver setting.

Each coin is hand-wrapped in sterling silver and is one-of-a-kind. This particular coin is titled "The Waterfall."

FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING!

*PLEASE NOTE* the only picture that does not necessarily the coin you are looking at for purchase is the one with the woman wearing it. I just use that as an example to show where it lies on the neck.

These are handmade items using vintage pieces!! Each piece has it's own personality and imperfections....just like us =)

The glass golden beads are worn through the hundreds of hours it has endured showing thousands of children how to count.

    The earings are just perfect...the original old color for #3 which I needed to match an outfit. The one-of-a-kind feel is worth more than I paid for them that's for sure!
