Recycled silver coins
These beautiful contemporary, nature inspired and eco-conscious dandelion clock ring is lovely to make. They are available in all sizes, and each one is handcrafted to order from an sterling silver British coin.

Coins minted before 1920 in Britain (and many other countries) are sterling silver. These coins are just perfect to turn into rings. During the terrible world wars some artisan soilders would take these precious coins and transform them into rings for loved ones and to remind them of loved ones back 'at home'. The resourcefulness of these soilders is admirable and inspiring. This resourceful intent has now resurfaced in my work as a silversmith with green ethics looking to create original and unusual wearable pieces of art. Trench art to recycled art.

The outside surface of the ring is meticulously hand filed, sanded and polished to a beautiful high lustre. This gives the rings a wonderfully surface to hand engrave the dandelion clock seed details. The inside of the ring the other side of the coin is clearly visible. This hidden detail, for you, completes the circle.

There is no 'join' in these rings which is another reason they are just perfect as wedding bands, they are an 'unbroken circle', quite lovely and symbolic.

Smaller size rings are made using sterling silver Sixpences and Shillings. Medium size rings are made using Shillings and Florins, whilst larger rings are made using Florins and Halfcrowns. They all look fab. From the drop down menu you are able to request a specific width. Below are a list of the maximum widths for each coin when transformed into a ring. You are welcome to request thinner bands for each coin but obviously not wider than stated.

Sizes : Approx

Sixpences approx 4 mm wide.

Shillings approx 7mm wide.

Florins approx 9mm - 10mm wide.

Halfcrowns approx 10mm - 12 wide.
