~NEW COIN~ Presenting LITTLE WING

Recommended Posts

~Little Wing~

 

100_1749.jpg

 

Hello cachers and coiners! I am pleased to tell you about a new coin I designed for Hogwild Stuff. This has been a long time in the making as it includes moving parts that open and close as part of the charm. My idea germinated after seeing a child's party invitation with a ladybug whose wings opened up to reveal the party description and details.

 

On this coin, the wings move to the open position to reveal the text "Fly on Little Wing" which may sound familiar to those Jimi Hendrix fans out there. :rolleyes:

 

After coming up with the first side, the trick was to make the flip side of the coin also work with the moving "wing" part of the ladybug. I knew immediately that I wanted to use a flower and have the petals open up. I decided that a tulip would work with the closed shape of the ladybug and after a little help from Jamie of Mad Hatters Neverland, we came up with this:

Pink Tulip

Orange Tulip

Red Tulip

 

And my AE Purple Tulip which is not available for sale through the website. Please email me through my profile to discuss trades for other AE or LE coins.

Each coin is trackable with a unique icon. The coins are 1.75 inches tall, 1.15 inches wide (closed) and 2.20 inches wide (open). The above colors (pink, orange, red) are available in antique gold or antique silver finishes. As the sale was pre-advertised to Hogwild Stuff members, the red antique gold coins have already sold out!

 

To order, please visit the Hogwild Stuff website: HERE

 

Thanks for looking! :)

I ordered one of the AG Red versions a few days ago, and it was in the mailbox yesterday. :) Tis an awesome coin, and I'm glad I ordered it.

I ordered one of the red ones, too. The coin is great, nice job.

It reminds me of a necklace I had as a girl. It was a butterfly just like the coin, and the wings hinged open. Underneath was a small watch, so you could tell time.

I should also point out that my photo of the orange tulip doesn't really do it justice. The color is actually a peachy-orange color and I think they are very beautiful even though I lean toward jewel-toned coins. But then again, I am biased. :)

I ordered a couple a while back, and they recently came in the mail. I love them -- I love how the wings work and how the coin works two images into its shape. It's just an awesome little coin. Thank you!

I originally got two of these coins, but they were so charming that everyone I showed them to immediately fell in love with them! So I gave away the first set, and then ordered one of each color in the AS. Now I can't decide which one I want to keep. :)

 

The little ladybug hidden in the petals is the perfect touch.

 

That purple version is gorgeous!!! Hrmmm I wonder what I have that's trade worthy...

I give my 12 year old daughter full credit for this part of the design. She'll be thrilled that you liked it!

 

 

And I appreciate all the very nice comments. Thank you. :)

What a creative idea! Very nicely done TPT!

 

Edit to add: I had to fire up both the Jimi and SRV versions of the song to get 'em out of my head.

I gotta sell a thing or two via eBay before I can afford to buy one, but this is on my list to must haves, such a cool idea!

Where do i buy this coin from

 

This thread is 6 YEARS old ... and the coins sold out ... 6 YEARS AGO.

 

E-place or a private party ... and they are pricey !!

 

BTW ... Hogwild Stuff went out of business some time ago.
