It's Ring-tastic!

     Anybody up for another jewelry idea? How about a ring made from a foreign coin?

 We have collected quite a few different European coins from our time spent in Germany. Some of them are really unique.
I chose three that I thought would look cute as rings.
The coin on the left is a Spanish Peseta.  It says, "Espana," and has a picture of a Spanish building. It has a hole in the center, so I put a little bling there.
The middle one is 20 Pence from England. I liked the picture on it- a flower with a crown.
My favorite is the coin on the right. It's 1 Krone from Denmark. It has 2 hearts on it. This coin also has a hole in the center which I filled with some bling. I like this one because of the hearts and because Denmark is where my hubby and I got married. Makes the hearts seem fitting, huh?

I just used a little E-6000 glue to attach the coins to the ring backs. Then I gave it a good 24 hours to dry.

What do you think? One-of-a-kind, that's for sure!

     If you like this project, you may want to go here to see how to make foreign coins into magnets.

    Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Now I know what to do with those foreign coins. Our grands always ask that we bring them back coins, along with all the other souvenirs.

Thanks for sharing at Throwback Thursday!
