ancient coins represent a real value of the material. Currently value is based on agreements. This project shows the transformation of function and value related to the material. Coins are reduced to an outline showing their
new value as being jewelry.
This everyday object is reshaped and repurposed to create an entirely different item using a small intervention. The aim of the project is to create a collection of jewelry linked to the tradition of crown jewels that now become accesible to everyone and open the discussion on value of material.
