On display

color scheming
The Squished Penny Museum in DC had only 250 pennies of its collection of 6,000 on display at any one time, because you cannot appreciate any more than that in one sitting. I imagine that number is significantly less for pictures of pennies.

Since I only have about a hundred total, I've been wanting to make a wall display for my pennies. Cruising pinterest got me a few ideas (I didn't re-pin anything even though that's EXACTLY the point) but nothing is quite right for me. I'm thinking some sort of tapestry or hanging, with jewel tones and metallic threads holding the pennies on. Big ideas, who knows what'll happen.
