Oatie’s designer Kaelen Howard introduced herself to me via James, and I’m so happy she did. I really dig her antique coin necklaces that she started making with her boyfriend as a hobby. Most of the coins are from the early 1900’s (coal scrip) in copper or silver. In the early 1900’s coal mining camps had their own currencies made. This forced miners to pay inflated prices for goods at the general stores etc. Check out her etsy shop for the full collection, they are great unisex pieces.
