The Olive and Rose | Handmade Brass and Coin Necklace

Tonight’s Gift Guide Giveaway feature is coining a new path for fashion and jewelry. Owner of The Olive and Rose, Sandy Bryan, shares her story below:

“I am a person who loves buying, selling and displaying all things vintage.  I have always collected vintage but began selling (seriously) when an interior consultant advised me that I had too many collections and needed to share my things at her Paris Flea Market.  It was through that experience that I realized I loved to display and share my finds with others; passing along the story of the object, and helping find a place for it in their homes.

I am proud of all the experience I have amassed over the past 10 years, beginning at selling the local college flea markets to now some of the best Antique shows in the country.  In between, I even co-owned a great retail co-op for four years! Now, I love producing antique shows and bringing together great talent and vintage items for others to find…while of course, shopping and selling along the way!!”

    oh i am Dutch… and even tho now they have Euro’s, i still have a lot of the old coins. Kind of cool.
    You guys are awesome!

  2. I’ve always loved coins! My dad collected coins and one of his prize pieces was an ancient Roman coin. I loved looking through his collection.

  3. Kez Viola says:

    When I was a little girl my grandfather gave me some old German coins he had come across after the first world war when he was a young man in Europe. I put them in an old tin and they’ve lived in my treasure chest for ages. Something precious to hand down to my grandchildren one day!

  4. Sue Asbjornsen says:

    I have a 1901 2&1/2 dollar gold coin that has been passed down in our family. I likedthis post because it encouraged to take the tiny coin out and enjoy it!

  5. nancy d says:

    I love this necklace! I’m not a big coin collector-but I do tend to check my change and have found several wheat pennies! And I do have some old subway tokens that would be fun to make into charms for a necklace or bracelet. I would be thrilled to wear these coins around my neck :)

  6. Pam Ballard says:

    Thanks for the chance at this great giveaway. I love collecting coins from my travels.

  7. Patricia says:

    My husband used to collect coins, but not anymore. I think we still have a couple of silver dollars from the late 1800′s.

  8. CONNIE says:

    Lovely! I have a modest collection of coins and paper money. When traveling, I make sure that I come home with enough to keep and share and friends and family return the gifts. I also have many old silver dollars, wheat and Indian head coins, and other US money. My favorite is a tightly rolled silver certificate dollar bill still held tight by a tiny pink ribbon. My grandfather placed it in my hand on the day I was born. Priceless!

  9. Amanda says:

    very unique and pretty. would love to have it!

  10. leslie says:

    Appreciating vintage is a wonderful hobby. Adding to its beauty is an art. To me, it shows appreciation of history. Love it!

  14. Angela Sperry says:

    Coin jewelry reminds me of my dad and the sixties. LOVE it!

  15. Lisa says:

    Love these necklaces! I need one!!

  16. Ann says:

    I have an old metal token from a brothel in the west. The working girls were not allowed to handle money so the men bought tokens! Your beautiful jewelry would be much more suitable to wear.

  17. bobbi says:

    What a great idea, from a fellow Statesman.

  18. Sarah Nutter says:

    Ahh this is GORGEOUS!!! I love old coins…my grandpa collected them and I have a big box of them – they’re so pretty and unique, and they remind me of a simpler time :) .

  19. Erica H says:

    These are so cool and interesting! I collect coins when we travel. They are not rare, but are unusual to us. So far, my favorite is the Danish kronor with the hole in the middle – perfect for jewelry making!

  20. rose says:

    I LOVE the necklace. I think the beaded chain compliments the coins. I do have some old coins, but they are tucked away f
    or the kids. My husband made me earrings from Indian head pennies and Indian trade beads….love them. I wish you continued success in your business. I’m logging onto your Etsy store as soon as I sign off;-)

  21. Teresa Vanselow says:

    My step dad used to travel overseas with his job quite a bit and he would bring me back coins from where he traveled to share with my students. I do have a favorite one, its like a square penny, and was given to me by a missionary at church camp many years ago. I can’t remember where it was from.

  22. Shawn Johnson says:

    I used to have an old silver dollar that I am wishing I would have kept now but needed to sell at the time. Love the necklaces they are beautiful!!

  23. Judy Mix says:

    I absolutely love these necklaces! (and anything vintage!). My husband has some old coins, along with letters that his grandfather left him. I don’t know much about the coins, but the letters date from the 1800s and are amazing to read.

  24. Kim Stewart says:

    The 1907 Indian penny I got in change at The Body Shop a few years back!

  25. Cheryl Frederick says:

    Love the necklaces! I have some old silver coins from the 1880′s.

  26. Christie says:

    My most unique coin is a Roman coin given to me by a friend. My favorite coins are some very old English silver sixpences and some ha’penny coins. Hard to imagine a half of a penny ever being worth something! Your necklaces are beautiful. Thanks for this giveaway opportunity.

  27. Karen Natiw says:

    Love old coins.found a suitcase of coins in my grandpas attic from all over the world.there’s coins from 1800′s!

  28. Marta says:

    My dad was into coin collecting, so he would share his passion by buying us kids proof sets of different coins that I still treasure.

  29. Kristen Sherman says:

    I found a great group of coins that my dad began collecting when he was in the Navy out on some little island in the Indian Ocean. Going through them was a lot of fun and while he’s not around to walk me down the aisle on my wedding day, I was blessed with finding just one silver sixpence in all of those coins. I plan to put it in my shoe and remember that he will be with me on that day.

  30. I love all things vintage and have made several necklaces for friends from old rosaries and key hole decorative metals, skeleton keys, typewriter keys, etc. My mother recently bought a beautiful necklace/earring set of antique coin and turquoise pieces she had commissioned that are amazing. I don’t necessarily collect coins but have kept coins from places we travel and coins from my husbands grandfather’s stent in Japan while he was stationed during WWII. I would absolutely love and treasure one of these pretty pieces of art! Thank you for the chance to win.

  31. Gail says:

    It might not be so unique, but it’s special to me. It’s a proofed, .50 piece my dad gave to me when I was a little girl.

  32. Laurie says:

    I’ve worn a nickel on a chain for the past 20 years in rememberance of a baby I lost at 30 weeks, his name was Nicholaus and I had nick named him “Nickels”. It was one of the little ways of learning to cope with his loss and keeping his memory close, but I love the look of coins as necklaces as well.

  33. Kazy Hinds says:

    I have many unique coins from my travels…I have one that has a hole in it…as a teenager I wore it around my neck as a necklace…this neckalce of yours brings back that memory…just a beautiful piece that I would love to wear today! Thanks for the chance…=)

  34. Katie says:

    What a beautiful idea :)

  35. Rebecca says:

    I have a coin ring I have worn for 23 years, given to me by a very special person on my sixteenth birthday.. Love coins!! This necklace is a beautiful piece!!!

  36. Judy says:

    Yes, I have a small collection of coins from around the world. I love the necklace!

  37. Bridgitte says:

    Your creations are beautiful and remind me of years of coin collecting as a child. Also stamp collecting. My son who will celebrate his 30th birthday this New Years Eve recently “got the coin collecting bug” and recruited my granddaughters that are 10 and 4. It’s great to see them immediately look at the coin, the date, run to their collections and see if they have it. On a recent visit I turned over my silver dollar and half dollar collection to the three of them. They had to recite the “Oath of Coin collecting” I made up years ago in an attempt to get my kids to save their money! Great to see the tradition passing on to another generation. I’m presenting them with my grandmothers penny collection at Christmas. This will then become a 5 generation collection! I am soooo excited to share it with them. It’s been tucked away for years while part of it is hanging on my mothers spare bedroom wall. What fun it will be to watch their eyes brighten as they see coins they’ve never seen! Thanks for sharing your necklace here. Going to check out your website!!!

  38. Beth Ann says:

    My girls love collecting coins from other countries. Your jewelry is lovely! :)

  39. Allison says:

    Love what you have done with the old coins! Beautiful!

  40. Karen says:

    I have a full bag of old coins that I received from my great uncle before he passed. I treasure them and will pass them down to my children.
    Thank you, Karen

    I’ve loved The Olive and Rose for a while but didn’t realize how close we were. My daughter is moving to Chico in January… I’ll come through and see her!

  42. Nancy says:

    Oh so cool! I’m a former bank teller so I don’t usually look at coins as jewelry. You are so clever. I would love to have one of these.

  43. Jem says:

    I had a lucky penny for a very long time, I picked it up outside Buckingham Palace on a trip to London and it seemed I had a little run of luck after that. I kept it a very long time then passed it to a friend :-)
