Recycled ‘out of circulation’ coin
An absolutely beautiful oak leaf ring which is not only handcrafted, unusual, completely unique but have also been transformed from old 110 year old coins. 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 ‘coin’ rings are available in a limited qty and limited sizes.

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 important to note 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.

Size : approx 5 mm – 6 mm wide. Unfortunately the coin size itself limits the amount of ring sizes.

    Stunning and Original

    What a beautiful piece of jewellery, I haven’t seen anything like this anywhere else and could spend every penny I have and still not have enough from this website! This ring has got to be top of the list though.

    LOVE IT!

    I LOVE this ring! It is so unique and beautiful, I simply can’t stop looking at it. I love that it was made from metal that has its own memory, sort of like wearing a piece of history. I am proud to wear it. Highly recommend!

    Stunning! So much talent.

    I couldn’t wait for the ring to arrive. Considering it’s coming from the U.K. to the USA , it did not take long via mail. When it came it was absolutely in love with it. I wanted it for myself! But it was a gift and the recipient was so happy with it too. You can’t go wrong with the Hairy Growler! Blessed Be.

    A lovely talking point…

    I ordered my Oak Leaves coin ring as a keeper ring to prevent my wedding and engagement rings slipping off my finger when my hands are cold. Whilst it’s not the “normal” type of thing people might go for ( Who wants to be normal anyway?)I think it is absolutely beautiful. The copper colour seems to have become brighter with use, which I really like, and the oak leaf design is very delicate and reflects my love of nature. I have used nail varnish as suggested, to seal the inner surface of the ring as the chemistry of my skin in contact with the copper did cause skin discolouration. This was a job of moments , and no bother at all. I love the ring and I’m looking forwards to adding more Hairy Growler pieces to go with my ring and Wren farthing pedant ( a gift from my Dad minted in his birth year) Annie 😀

    Was a bit nervous about the sizing aspect, but didn’t need to worry. Ring is a perfect fit and is so beautiful. Expert work, and it arrived in such lovely packaging too! I’m already checking out other pieces as you can’t have too much beauty in your life

    From little acorns….

    I dropped some subtle (and some not so subtle) hints about this ring and several other items from the Hairy Growler for my recent significant birthday. I am delighted that this beautiful, unique and exquisitely crafted ring was the piece chosen. It fits perfectly and looks wonderful. I can’t wait to show it off! A ring to treasure for many years to come.

    We bought a matching pair of these rings as ethical, interesting and not overly expensive replacement wedding rings. We both love them. The rings are beautifully finished and fit well. We love the oak leaves design which has special meaning for us. Original and lovely, Thanks
