Income Ideas: Turning an artifact into jewelry

In conjunction with the celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Stamp Act Riot, the Newport Historical Society created a piece of jewelry out of an image of one of the 1765 stamps. It is offered in their shop and online for $34. A portion of the sale of each bracelet supports the Society's annual reenactment of the Stamp Act Riot.  the 1765 stamps.  (Pictured: Elizabeth Sulock, Manager of Public Outreach & Living History, with the bracelet.)
