Found On…

There’s jewelry… and then there’s jewelry worth remembering.  When I saw Lorna Leedy’s Penny Collection on Daily Candy I was completely fascinated with the story behind her pieces.  Her necklaces (and earrings and bracelets) are gorgeous on their own – but once you learn where they come from, you can’t help but fall in love.

Each piece is crafted from pennies that have been squashed by trains in the railroad city of Marfa, TX, where Lorna lives part time.  I love how something so simple and generally overlooked has been reinvisioned into a unique piece of jewelry.
