How to make a ring from a coin

This is the most amazing tutorial on how to make a ring from a quarter. It’s easy, but takes a lot of patience to hammer it into shape. The pay off is the look of awe from your friends when you show it off. Apparently, US quarters and dimes from 1964 and earlier are 90% silver. I haven’t found one of those yet, but will keep my eye out!

    • It took me at least 90 mins of hammering and several glasses of wine;) It’s definitely a labour of love but at least I know what my husband is getting for our next anniversary.
