The addition of a new baby to the family is just a precious and memorable event! Whether its by birth, adoption or surrogacy this is a moment to cherish forever. To commemorate just such an exciting life change there's a rising trend in jewelry making using something as simple and historical as a penny! Artists are making necklaces and keychains with baby feet charms layered over a penny to represent the year their lives were changed forever!
Choose any year penny to represent the year your baby was born: it could be 2012, 2013, 2014 or even a newborn infant for 2015! Then, layer the penny on a keychain or necklace chain with any number of charms; baby feet charms, birthstones or crystals, metal stamped nameplates blanks or metal stamped birthdate blanks!
