Picture of Small Change Ring
IMG_4670.JPG
This is a ring made from a coin, covered with decorative paper and Diamond Glaze.

I recently got some Diamond Glaze, and was really excited to use it. I wanted to make Scrabble letter pendants, but I couldn't find the jar of French Scrabble tiles we have. (Of course, my mother found it immediately after, behind some things I had only looked in front of.)
In lieu of Scrabble tiles, I decided to try the Diamond Glaze on coins!

Step 1: You'll need...

Picture of You'll need...
For this ring, you'll need:

• A small coin (something like a penny, nickel, dime, or whatever small coins are made where you live)
• Pretty paper (just enough to cover your coin)
• Diamond Glaze (or another product that serves the same purpose, a Dimensional Adhesive)
• Wire
• Wire cutters and pliers
• Epoxy
• Something roughly finger-shaped, like a marker or a dowel
• A pencil
• Scissors

Yes! Finally a good use for all those totally useless 1 cent euro! Thank you! I'll try this as soon as possible.

Thanks! I'm so glad you like it! If you do make one, it would be awesome if you could post a picture!
I have to find the diamond glaze you talked about. Then I'll try to solder the bail or drill a hole in it, to make some pendant. First tries, from the left: the useless coin, wrong glue, nail polish:

That's terrific, and will give me something to do with my old European coins (which won't get paper), and my two bottles of Diamond Glaze, which are gathering dust on the craft shelf. Thank you so much!

It would be really cool without paper! I'm glad you like it! Thanks!

That is so clever, what a great idea. (I see from your coins that you are a fellow Canadian).

Yes indeed! Thank you!
