The art of crafting coin rings is relatively new, with frequent innovations throughout the industry. What first started with a drill, mallet, and mandrel has reached jewellers, historians, and coin collectors worldwide. Rings made from coins are often very beautiful with intricate, vintage designs that are polished or antiqued to create a gorgeous appearance. These rings are made of either silver, copper, or bronze.
James was a 15-year-old student when he joined the Valley Artisans in 2020 and is the crafter of these coin rings. He entered this business because he wanted a coin ring for himself. Several months later plus hours of practice, he was making his own rings for family, friends, customers on eBay and his online store. He plans on branching outside of primarily coin ring making to crafting his own fine jewelry very soon.
