while in finland this past summer, i bought these wonderful earrings made of discontinued finnish marks by laura assrivuori-eskol (i posted about them here) - i just *love* them (!)
what are we going to do with all the extra pennies?...
here's a few pieces that i love from etsy... you might even be able to send some of your canadian pennies to the artists themselves for them to create a unique and one-of-a-kind piece. in fact, when i was in laura's shop, someone had just commissioned her to make earrings out of canadian coins they had left her.

how awesome would it be to have something made to commemorate this year with the last 2013 pennies... an engagement? wedding? birth? or something from the past??
