Handmade Coin Guitar Pick & Coin Necklaces
Show off your Austin-style with these handmade Coin Guitar Pick necklaces crafted from foreign coins. Acting as actual guitar picks and golf ball markers as well as great jewelry. Well known musicians have been using coin picks for many years. Such as world famous Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top and Brian May from Queen.
Artist Chris Copeland, pictured here, is wearing his custom handmade coin guitar pick necklaces. Chris, a professional musician and drummer performs with Ruby Jane & The Reckless, Austin’s premier violin-led Indie rock group. In addition, he plays with the Jane Ellen Bryant band, Austin’s 2017 winners of both, “Best New Band” and “Best Female Vocals” as well as studio session work.
Chris painstakingly cuts and fashions each coin with hand saws and drills. Since, each piece is handcrafted and custom made, no two are alike. Many of these creations cut a single coin into numerous pieces to form geometric designs. And, some come with stones as well.
