This Is Our Story.
It all started just as you could imagine... with our spare change.
To us, coins have always seemed to be the greatest little things in the world.
I mean if you really think about it, every time you hold a coin, you are handling what has passed through countless hands before yours. This simple coin has walked through hundreds of stories witnessing the hard, the good, the complicated, and the beautiful. It has been used by the rich and the poor alike, the businessman and the homeless. If coins could tell stories, we would hear, see, and feel the lives of people all around us: people near and far. These coins would inspire hope, courage, love and faith.
We believe that coins could inspire this change and that is where our story begins.
Back in the spring of 2015, after a long and spontaneous road trip across the country, Danielle and I realized that all we had left from our adventure was a pile of our spare change. We wanted to save the coins from our trip as a memory, but soon realized that if we did, they would begin to collect dust in a box under our bed. What if we could create something from these coins that told the stories of the people who passed them along to us?
That next week, Danielle, the more creative of the two of us sisters, had handcrafted a jewelry line using our spare change. It didn't take long for friends and family to begin asking if we could create pieces for them. Before we knew it, we had a small business selling these handcrafted pieces of “coin jewelry” around the country.
Fast forward to the Spring of 2016.
