Not a great picture but I think you see what you can do with coins. I made these in about 15 minutes(coins were already drilled). I just played with it and had some left over 0-rings and shiny stuff from a throw away belt from work.
You can use any coins but the smaller the better for your ears. You could add anything to the coin from different kinds of beads, other metals,etc.
I have another blog on how to drill them @
