What you'll do

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. 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. I have lots of coins to choose from, which are included in your Experience. 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. 1/20/20 - Good grief I just looked at the guest photos. DO THIS - by now they tell the story far better than I can. 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.

What's included

Drinks
Soft drinks and water in abundance. My time slots are often at lunchtime. Don't feel like you need to eat beforehand. …
Equipment
You may choose from a variety of privately minted copper rounds of varying size for your ring. All tooling is provided.
