Rhiannon had this 1911 solid gold sovereign coin that we mounted into a bespoke one-off ring, held tight inside these claws. A non-traditional take on the classic sovereign ring idea. The antique filigree back keeps the ages of the coin within the piece.

Metal Detector Groat

Stevie's Dad found this 650 year old groat coin with his metal detector. It's a silver Edward III fourpence coin minted between 1351-1361. I set the coin inside a gold frame to protect it and gave this a matt finish as the coin is to old to look right with a polished edge. The claws are also oxidised to help the antique look like it just came out the ground.

Grace's Gypsy Coin Necklace

Grace and I went through her Grandad's coin collection to pick out our favourites to make this commemorative necklace for her. Inspired by a 'Gypsy' necklace where by coins would have been worn around the neck for safe keeping and removed to pay for things. This also plays on the very out of fashion style of 'wearing your wealth'. The bold over opulence, now considered  crass, 'lower class' and very out of fashion makes me love it even more. Because, more is more!

Gina's Grandad's Coin Collection

Gina had a small handful of coins that her Grandad collected during his travels. They are set into specially made claws securely holding each momento. In the centre hangs a Chilean 'Libertad' 10 pesos from 1978. Then from right to left is a New York City transit token, 1 Hong Kong Dollar 1979 with Queen Elizabeth on the back, 10 Yen from Japan and 25 Sentimos from the Philippines 1970. The last claw is wearing a tiny diamond pinky ring just like Gina's Grandad used to.
