About

Coins and artifacts given new life as wearable history.

My husband "Chicago Ron" Guinazzo leads metal detecting tours twice a year to England. We met in 2012, and I joined him on these trips.

We dig all types of items; coins, tokens, buttons, watch winders, buckles, bells, clothing fasteners, etc. All of the artifacts we find are reported to the British Museum, and exported with proper documentation.

I personally research, sort, clean, and polish the artifacts. In designing the jewelry piece, I try to maintain the integrity of the artifact.

You are receiving a real piece of wearable history!

    Years ago I suggested to my husband that our detecting finds be transformed and given a new life as wearable history. He wholeheartedly agreed. In December that idea came to fruition. I'm so excited to share these with you.

    I was encouraged by my wife's vision to transform our metal detecting finds into jewelry. As I researched with her, I became fascinated with chain maille, and decided to try my hand. We feel it's a nice addition to the primary line of jewelry.
