Tired of gold and diamonds? Perhaps you're a bit cool
on that whole "diamonds are forever" bit? Maybe you're reluctant to prop up the De Beers cartel
? Gold is nice, but doesn't it leave a bad taste in your mouth to be such a conformist consumer?
Well this is the project for you, the progressive, self-sufficient DIY'er! Show your love and lasting commitment in the way you know best: by making your own wedding band from a Genuine US Nickel! (or other coinage of your choice)
This is a great beginner wedding band project, suitable for a first engagement or wedding. By the time you're ready for your next wedding band, perhaps i'll have written up how to make something a bit fancier :)
Note: In all candor, I do not personally find this to be an especially attractive ring although I do wear it daily. I think it would be a lot nicer if you can find a thicker coin to use.
