Change Is Beautiful

Artist Jessie Driscoll's gleaming Coin Charm Bracelets forge history and design through the ever-evolving nature of silver. Hand-forged from vintage dimes (dating from 1827-1964) given to Driscoll by her paternal grandparents, each one-of-a-kind piece is shaped using traditional forging and hammering techniques and then cast in sterling silver. The front of each coin cast is transformed into shapely peony and daisy pendants, while the back retains its original monetary imprint. Handmade by Jessie Driscoll in Woodstock, NY. Sold separately.

Jessie Driscoll

For Jessie Driscoll, jewelry is a family affair. An avid jeweler since childhood, all four of Driscoll's grandparents made jewelry before her--it was only natural for Driscoll to pick up the craft and thrive in her own way.

Known for her silver dollar jewelry collection, Driscoll considers these one-of-a-kind pieces the coming together of her skills and inspirations. Serendipitously, Driscoll received a large supply of vintage silver coins as a gift from her paternal grandparents. Drawing upon her experience in antiques sales, Driscoll's mother helped her to turn her hobby into a thriving business.

Driscoll studied silversmithing at the Woodstock Guild in Woodstock, NY. While obtaining a BA in Psychology at Vanderbilt University, she pursued music, art and sourced antique jewelry in her free time. Driscoll collected historic pieces like WWII trench art bracelets with the help of her father. Driscoll lives in Woodstock, NY with her husband (and business partner), Dan, and their three children.
