Reimagined Components: 1891 Portuguese 20 Reis coin strung on 22" 4mm braided brass rope chain.
1888's Take: Antique and well worn, this piece came with the hole in it already I love thinking about the person who wore it and all the adventures they must have had in order to give it all the scars and dents..."
