Year of the Sheep Coin Ring

This ring, made from a 2015 Year of the Sheep silver two pound coin, has a special significance for me. I was commissioned by a family friend to make a wedding band, with a view to using a gold sovereign as the substrate. Given the diameter of the sovereign and the price of the coin, I suggested using a different coin. He chose a two pound coin – a mighty ounce of silver, minted in 2015, the year of his wedding.

Making it was far from easy, and took hours of hard work, with several scares along the way. It was testing the limits of my equipment at that time, but I was determined to see it through to the finish. The end result was a one of a kind, beautiful ring.
