Mercury Head Dime Coin Ring by L. Wood  - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

This ring mount changed several times during the fabrication.

I wanted to see the full face of the coin and also not damage it.

I wound up making a wire rope for the coin to sit on and tacked it together with a small amount of solder.

    It’s amazing sometimes how difficult it can be to find the perfect setting for a special item. This wonderful old coin doesn’t look as worn as many coins of its age do.
