Det skal I lave
I imagine most participants relish a hands-on experience but if anyone wants simply observe, that's OK too. The array of tooling may look intimidating but the process is quite simple. We'll start with a little talk about safety, then walk through the steps of converting a coin to a ring. The overall process takes about an hour but we'll set aside two hours and beyond. We get to play with fire, whack things with a hammer and apply thousands of pounds of force to fold a coin from a disk shape, to a funnel and finally into a ring shape. Once the coin is looking like a ring, we stretch and compress it to the desired shape and size. Your new ring is then polished, patina applied if desired, and clear coated. If copper is not your thing, you may upgrade to silver for the cost of the material. A .999 pure silver half dollar is $10 and a one ounce silver dollar is $20. If you have a meaningful coin that has been hiding in a dresser drawer, it is quite possible we can turn it into a one-of-a-kind treasure! Also, I have a large supply of US half dollars available at no extra cost. They make a remarkably beautiful ring. Thank you, but please no tipping! PLEASE READ: MY POSTED TIMES ARE TYPICALLY 11AM TO 1PM. I AM USUALLY FLEXIBLE ON TIME AND DATE SO PLEASE INQUIRE ABOUT DIFFERENT DATES AND TIMES THAT BETTER FIT YOUR SCHEDULE. I look forward to hearing from you! Chris
Chris & Catherine
I (Chris) am a retired AT&T engineer and enjoy being an AirBnB lodging host. I have always kept my hands busy building and crafting things and for seven or eight years have been doing small lathe projects, kayak building, soap making and the like. Recently I discovered the craft of fashioning rings from coins. I have been pondering becoming and Experience Host for a while now and believe the ring making craft offers the perfect balance of hands-on craftiness, relative ease, timing and safety, plus you depart with a beautiful piece of functional artwork of your own making! PLEASE INQUIRE if you'd like to set up a day and time that is not currently listed. I will happily accommodate if possible.
