Cents of Style

"See a penny, pick it up. All day long you'll have good luck. Give that penny to a friend, and your luck will never end."

Knock cents into style with this richly constructed necklace that suspends honest Abe from a gold plated or sterling silver chain, featuring the year of your choice. Pinch a penny from any year to instantly add a piece of Americana, and a bit of luck, to your neckline. You choose your year! Handmade by Beatrice Matiash in New Jersey.

Made in New Jersey

Designer Beatrice Matiash is motivated by unconventional sources of inspiration. "I am in part a collector," she said. "Everywhere I go, I feel drawn to the color combination on anything from a flyer to a tea set, and to the history of things like a twig or a penny. I collect all these things that influence my jewelry designs." She fondly recalls collecting pennies as a child and immediately checking the year so she could dream up a story about the owner who dropped it.
While managing a trend-driven jewelry boutique and apprenticing for the head designer, Beatrice earned her B.A. in Fashion Buying and Merchandising from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She then joined the Federated Merchandising Group in product development for accessories and simultaneously began to develop her own jewelry design craft. Moving to DKNY as merchandise manager for handbags, she gained insight into the accessories business essential to starting her own company.
In the spring of 2000, Beatrice launched Tashka by Beatrice with a small collection sold in local neighborhood boutiques. Her offerings now include five jewelry groups available nationwide.

Very nice

My wife passed away unexpectantly. Her name was Penny. My sister in law unselfishly donated one of her kidneys to her giving her more time to live long enough to see her first grandchild born. Thank you Lynda for all that you have done. Especially nice was the option to choose the date on the Penny. 1961 was chosen. Her birth year

PERFECT

This is something that my wife's late Grandfather always told her..."Make pennies" at her job, so after he passed i got her something to always remember him by, a penny close to her heart with his date of birth on it

Looks cheap

Was disappointed in the price-thought it would be better quality, but it looks like something you get out of a candy machine.

Remember that year? It was great!

This was a memorial gift i got for my mom , my grandma pasted away and i had the penny stamped with her birth year cause she was the number 1 grandma and best friend. Since she has past every time me or my mom have a fork in the road or a bad day some how a penny will show up in places that there was no penny before. Or in the middle of a ' i dont know what to do' thought a penny will catch our eyes either on the ground , the counter . So this was a very meaningful gift for my mother now when ever she has doubts or a bad day she has her penny to guide her the way!

Absolutely Amazing!!!

I gave this beautiful necklace to my wonderful boss (who is the owner of the company). The date on the Penny was the year she started her company. I told her that for some a penny was a sign of hope and I wanted her to know that the year she formed her company, she gave thousands of people (associates) and all the patients we serve, hope. I told her that let this penny be a symbol of all the hope, love, and joy she brings to others and may God continue to bless her greatly for it! She is not an emotional woman, but she became teary eyed, and said that was one of the most thoughtful gifts anyone has ever given her. She LOVED it and was extremely grateful for the gift.

Great concept

The penny is so polished that it's almost impossible to read the year. The year was the most important part of this gift. It's a nice piece otherwise.

Pretty and Different

The penny itself was great. The chain could have been nicer. The clasp is odd and took awhile to figure out. Really don't care for the clasp.

Exquisitely Intriguing

I am a "penny believer" - I believe if you see a heads up penny - someone that has passed on is thinking of you. When I saw this necklace it looked so beautiful - when I saw that you could choose your date I was sold. I believe my father is with me when I find a penny - so I chose his birthdate for my penny. I wear it all the time - with many different styles. I have received many compliments on it.
