Recycled ‘out of circulation’ Jenny wren Farthing coin
These unusual and completely unique rings have been crafted and transformed from old British Jenny Wren Farthing coin. When Searching through the enormous coin collection i have gathered over the years there are coins which just scream out at me ‘I want to be a ring’. These are the coins which have intesting ‘text’ and texture or an interesting metal composition. Many of the Farthings will have a relevant date to you or a loved one. However, irrespective of the date the farthing makes a sweet little ring packed with love and history

The specific art of looking at coins and turning them into lovely wearable, unusual rings began during the terrible world wars. Some artisan soilders would take these 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 emblazons one side of the coin with much of its detail intact. This gives the rings a wonderfully interesting aspect and evident history. However the best part is the inside of the ring, where the other side of the coin is clearly visible. This hidden detail, for you, completes the circle.

It is also worth remembering that the ring is made from a copper coin. Many people feel the positive effects of copper against the skin ** MORE INFORMATION HERE ** however when exerting yourself or bathing is preferable to remove the ring to prevent unnecessary oxidation or verdigris build up. If this occurs the ring is easily cleaned and refreshed with soapy water. To completely prevent skin contact it is permissible to coat the inside of the ring with a clear nail varnish or lacquer.

These ‘coin’ rings are available in a selection of dates. Approx 5 mm wide.

Many of the necklace / pendant designs are complete. These designs have a sterling silver chain attached to the pendant from both sides. This design is perfect for looking in a mirror to fasten the necklace.
