How to make a nice ring out of a coin.

Find the coin you want to use. Quarters are probably the easiest to do.

Make your hole.


3 DIY Coin Ring (14 pics)

Look good?

Heat it up so it's easy to work with.

It should look like this when it's cool.

Begin the hammering.

After awhile, you should end up with something like this.

Continue to apply heat and hammer until you get a solid ring shape. The top edge in this one has already begun to be polished.
