“Stonehenge ring handcrafted and recycled from an old silver coin.”
Stonehenge ring is handcrafted to order from an 100+ year old sterling silver coin, which were minted before 1920 in ‘Britain’ (and many other countries) are sterling silver. These coins are just perfect to turn into a Stonehenge ring ancestral history and mysterious unknown stories. Making this Stonehenge ring is a long process, from silver half crown coin to finished piece.
During the creation I am thinking about our history, and about the lost history of the people, replaced with Royal histories and stories of wars and battles. I’m thinking about ancient ancestors and the use of megalithic structures. Thinking about our lost/hidden origin stories as a people. This coin is a cherished process and I don’t think it would be possible, if all of the time I was working on a piece of silver which was bought from a supplier, who in turn bought it as part of a supply chain beginning in a destructive profit drive silver mine.
The ring’s outer surface is emblazoned Stonehenge stones, which are hand-cut, hammered and carved into the surface of the silver coin. The inside of the ring, clearly shows the other side of the coin. This gives the rings a wonderfully interesting aspect and evident history. This hidden detail, for you, completes the Stonehenge coin ring.
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 Half-crowns. They all look magical.
Sizes : Approx
Shillings approx 6mm wide.
Florins approx 7 mm wide.
Half-crowns approx 8 mm wide.
“An unbroken circle of union…”
Finally, these rings also make fab alternative wedding bands; the creative process used in making them means that there is no join. They are an unbroken circle. One coin turned into a lovely, original ring, and you have to admit a pair of beautiful hares hands down beat a traditional ‘ring pillow’ for the ceremony!
