In these days of soaring gas prices, yelps of cash crunches and real estate depression, the last thing anyone would do is destroy money.
Well, anyone but Yoko Devereaux that is.
Created for Spring / Summer 2008, Old Money, is a collection of coins hand cut into works of art Yoko has attached to aged sterling silver necklaces.
Don’t fret though Freedom Fighters, no U.S. coins have been used. The coins collected are from around the world including Canada, Croatia, England, Russia and The Czech Republic.
The results are very masculine: Proud moose heads, stoic tall ships, mighty birds and regal profiles.
“When I was young, I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old, I know it is.”
– Oscar Wilde
