ManMade Design specializes in creating artisan jewelry out of etched coins. Every coin pendant is a unique, wearable work of art made in San Marcos, Texas. Primarily made from a U.S. Quarter that has been torched, hammered, cut, filed, and dropped into a jar of acid. Etching the coin reveals its copper core, resulting in a striking display. What is special about this process is that the coin can be prepared to perfection, but once it goes into the acid he has no control over it. This adds an element of unpredictability to his work, making every piece truly unique.
