1908 East India Coin Knitted Glass Bead Necklace
19". 36 strands of pale pink glass beads were strung before being attached to the knitted closure. Bamboo Skewers were used to knit in order to achieve the tightness needed for a perfect closure.
In my box of things I had found this coin with holes already drilled in it. Doing research I discovered that it is a British East India Company 1/4 Anna from 1908. It's made from bronze and on the backside there is the likeness of Edward VII with the words "Edward VII King & Emperor". Undrilled it would be worth anywhere between $25 to $500. Alas - the holes were already drilled when it was in an auction box I purchased.
So - I made a closure for this necklace out of it.
$54.75 includes shipping with a white cardboard jewelry box.
