It costs three or four cents to make a penny, which is why there's an ongoing hoopla about whether it should be taken off the market all together. Jewelry designer Raquel Honoré lovingly elevates the coin to new levels of iciness in her latest collection, creating gold-plated penny chains, drippy spray-painted necklaces and earrings. There are also Native American trading beads in her jewelry palette, and if you look closely at some of the new pieces modeled by Honoré's daughter, you'll see there are even Newton's Cradle baubles in there too.
