We're always on the lookout for new and beautiful ways to transform coins into art and jewelry.
So we are very honored to partner with Stuart Richards and add 'cut coin' jewelry to our other offerings.
As a partnership, Stuart does all of the cutting and Silver State Foundry turns each into a necklace, pin, earrings or cuff links in our Reno NV studio.
Meticulously hand cut, these works of art highlight the beauty of the world's greatest engravers.
Stuart uses a jeweler's saw to slowly and delicately remove the backgrounds on classic coins, leaving the detail, including script and other lettering, to reveal the engraver's original vision.
For his more detailed pieces, each one is completely unique, the only one in the world, a true 'one-of-one' work of art. If you see something that catches your eye, jump on it quickly because once it's gone, it's gone for good!
For less intricate designs (ie, the Buffalo/Indian Head Nickels), these are ongoing offering.
After selecting your piece, we'll add a bale and sterling silver chain so you can wear it as a necklace, or a pin and backing to wear it as a lapel pin/brooch/tie tack - your choice.
Silver State Foundry is proud to be Mr. Richards' exclusive partner, representing his art to a broad and discerning audience so he can focus on what he does best - cut coins.
