Check out Nancy Troske on YouTube discussing how to make jewelry from Ancient Coins.  https://youtu.be/VwIvtsN_zeE

Artful Jeweler's own Goldsmith Nancy Troske is a Princeton artisan who uses ancient techniques in jewelry-making and “re-interprets them for the modern world.” Her painstaking process brings her joy as she endeavors to create stunning pieces destined to become family heirlooms for today’s audience.

Troske adopts many of the labor-intensive methods used in ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt when creating her exquisite line of jewelry. Evidence of Greek goldsmithing dates to the first millennium. Troske points out that the methods she uses today, such as granulation, filigree work, and cloisonné enameling, are highly specialized arts. They have disappeared, and then reappeared many times over the centuries. Today, these prized techniques are experiencing a strong resurgence amid a renewed appreciation for handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces.
