The first time I saw a coin ring I was hooked, I thought it was one of the coolest thing I had ever seen. I just stared at it for a long time trying to wrap my mind around how an ordinary coin could become something so different but still be recognizable as a coin, it still blows me away. I have a little bit of an obsessive personality, and when I say a little bit I mean a lot a bit. I started learning as much about coin rings as I could, how they’re made, how long they’ve been around… you get the idea.
Anyway, that night I sat in my driveway, with none of the right tools by the way, and tried to make a coin ring, it was a disaster. Since then I’ve learned a lot and slowly acquired the right tools for the craft and spent countless hours in the shop, I’ve gotten better. Nothing has ever made me feel more challenged, frustrated, elated, angry, clever, and just plain stupid than coin rings have. By the way, that’s me with me family in the picture above, I couldn’t do what I do without them and their support. Thanks for visiting my page and I hope you saw something you like.
