On the Money

At first glance, these unique earrings featuring a woman's profile evoke the classic image of a cameo or a Victorian silhouette. But there's a material twist: Stacey Lee Webber tracks down Liberty dimes, minted 1916-1945. She then uses a jeweler's saw to delicately cut out the mythic woman's features, including the winged cap that represents the pursuit of freedom. The pendants are then suspended from oxidized silver hoops. Handmade in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
