    If you can't find rings, make rings from finds.

    Shown from left to right rings made from; a silver half dollar, a Mexican Peso, what was probably a draped bust cent, a 50 cent euro, a Chuck e Cheese token, a silver quarter, and an ordinary clad quarter.Name:  ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1497207494.030580.jpg

    Would you make a ring for someone else? I'd like to make my daughters a ring each from the first silver dimes I found, they are 5 and almost 2 and a both peanuts, they have tiny skinny fingers.

    Those are really nice by the way, sorry I usually get right to the point. I've always loved that people make these, especially the way you make it. I've tried doing it by hammering the coin's rim before and they come out ok but not like when you pop out the center and push it through to form the ring!

    Dimes are nearly impossible to make rings out of. Pictured is a ring made from a wheati that I found. It is about a size 3. Dimes are even smaller and they end up so skinny as to be unrecognizable.

    That's really neat. Wish I knew how. I DID find a newly dropped Chucky cheese token today at the beach.

    Wow nice job, I once tried with a clad quarter, which I bent in half (don't use a sledge hammer to try and save time)! If I tried that with anything nice, I would ruin both a ring and coin .
