Rustic Coil Rings
This is my simple coil stack design, but there's really nothing simple about them. Made with 12 gauge copper, these two rings can be worn alone, or stacked together for a bolder look. Keep one, and give another to a friend. I hand formed 12 gauge copper around a metal mandrel, and hammered vigorously until they formed a perfect round shape. The trick is to get the coil as close together as possible, which you may not find with other coil rings. I then sand the edges of the ring for a smooth feel and comfortable fit. Then, I oxidize and polish each piece for visual texture (and because it looks cool.) Finally, I run the rings in a metal tumbler for 8 hours to ensure their strength and durability. The inside of each ring has been coated with a skin safe glaze to prevent "green finger" which is a common occurrence, and I do not accept returns based upon this naturally occurring and harmless reaction. This set is a 7.5 and 8, the rings being of different sizes because our fingers tend to taper a little, and this also ensures a seamless, comfortable fit. 29.00 shipped.
