5 euro cent, something so commonplace but in Dutch designer Michiel Cornelissen's eyes, they are materials for making beaufiful stuff.

Michiel Cornelissen's E 5.55 project combines 3d-printing and 111 five-eurocent coins to create an unique and stunning necklace. The combination of shapes and colours creates a beautiful effect. He says,

I'm always intrigued by the beauty of some of the things we take for granted; like coins—little industrial gems. This project makes use of the intricate geometries and flexible behavior that are possible with 3d-printing—holding 111 five-eurocent coins firmly in place to create a stunning necklace.

The 3D printed part is available at Michiel Cornelissen's Shapeways store, and you can begin to collect your coins!
