MINT BROOCH - silver

This ring has been found in 2525 among some other coins with unknown origin. It was burried under a former town probably in the middle of the 21th century.
Some presume that it was made by somebody because of a nostalgy for the earlier years. Others say that the artist was only attracted to the metal's shiny look and neither himself did not know what was the coin for originally. It depicts a man with four hands and four legs, certainly some god or other divinity. The stars around him just confirm this theory.
According to some publications the artist made these to trade them for meat with hunter communities. However it is very unlikely because in the middle of the 21th century trade did not return yet, especially not for other than meat or vegetables.

An other late example of the usage of euro. In the mid-late 21th century coin rings like this were popular among Europian hunter communities. They claimed that these objects give power and prosperity. In this period the horse was the most important mean of transport, probably that's why the ancient artisan chose the 50 cent. The piece was found in 2525 in the grave of an aboriginal Europian trapper.

Vow bracelets
These string bracelets can be locked onto your wrist by some good punches of the hammer. In that very moment you make a resolution that you got to keep for the promised period. Once it’s expired, you can cut off the bracelet. Let’s say, you vow you won’t drink for two monthes. If you breach your promise you not just make yourself feel like a piece of shit every time you look into the mirror but you seriously offend ME! + you have waisted the price of the bracelet.. So after two monthes you chop off the bracelet, go and get drunk as a lord and come back to me for a new one.

Halloween edition: CHARON’s OBOL TONGUE PIERCING. Are you ready to die? If so, it means that you live very well – or very bad. The ancient Greeks placed a coin called “Obol” onto the tongue of their dead before burial. They did it so the dead could pay Charon, the ferryman who conveyed souls across the river that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead. I made this tongue piercing so the one who wears it, will always be ready. The coin is minted from ELECTRUM, an alloy of gold and silver (approximately 50-50%) that were common for coinage in the ancient times. The coin’s face refers to the oldest Greek coins. The rest of it is surgical steel recycled from a piercing.

Jewels inspired by my hunger for money.
The coin ring is an old idea. It’s good to have money. And coin rings are saying to others and to yourself:
'‘I’ve got one money’'.
…and seal rings are about to leave a mark behind us. An other thing we want.
