Coin Purse Necklaces

Earlier this year at some antique shows I saw a few people wearing cute vintage coin purse cross body purses as necklaces and I thought I would give it a try.

 I had to puncture some small holes just under the metal at the top so that I could get some rings through. Then just adding some chain to the top and VOILA!....................

Then a little embellishment to the front to give it a little POP!
I think they turned out really cute!

What do you think??


  1. Cute idea and a great use for coin purses that have been separated from their original handbags.

  2. These coin purses are absolutely devine! dix---

  3. So pretty and creative! I'd love to see them modeled ~ come on, don't be shy pretty lady:)


  4. Wow, I love the flower embellishment on the front of this cute coin purse. Nice work!
