Our Spare Change

 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 and see and feel the lives of people all around us; people near and far. These coins would inspire hope and courage and love and faith.

We believe that coins could and here is where our story starts.

Back in the spring of 2015, after a long spontaneous road trip across the country Danielle and I realized all we had left from the adventure we had gone on and the people we had met 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 that passed them along to us?

That next week, Danielle, the more creative of us two, 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 them pieces and before we knew it we had small business selling this handcrafted “coin jewelry” around the country. 

Fast forward to the Spring of 2016.
