Recycled silver Mercury Dime coin
I have hand cut and carved this lovely ‘Liberty Skull’ ring from a beautifully worn and unwanted silver Dime coin. Obviously I only use silver dimes that have found their way to me due to being unwanted by coin collectors. Often these lovely coins become uncollectible due to being in circulation and losing important details which collectors desire. These ‘imperfections’ are elements that i cherish as they show the previous life of the coin and provide lovely food for my imagination! I love to ‘adopt’ these little orphans and reinvent them into desirable, wearable jewellery. Each ring is completely hand cut and carved using traditional tools and techniques. The edges of the recycled sterling silver band are uniquely carved with a tiny, intricate, traditional English scroll design. As a result each piece is unique, individual, original, and 100% ethical and recycled!
Size : max width 16 mm width (the coin). Recycled silver band width 5 mm.
