When Italian jewelry makers have too much time on their hands, they don’t make paper footballs or post deep philosophies on Facebook, they make 2 cm-tall coffee pots. According to The Sun, Italian goldsmith Pietro Marmo, 54, created a fully functioning coffee maker/pot out of sterling silver that measures in at less than an inch tall. This little silver lucky charm can serve no more than a drop of coffee, which would be perfect for someone who doesn’t want coffee, but still wants to waste time in the morning making it.

The coffee pot comes with a heater, the pot itself, two filters and a gasket. It’s kind of neat, especially when put next to a coffee bean like the picture above, and makes for a nice pendant when not making breakfast. Marmo has designed jewelry, pendants and key rings for over 30 years and seems to have a thing for coffee themed designs.
