copy of Japanese coin ring - 100 Yen Cherry Blossoms

I make this ring out of two coins: 100 Yen coin from Japan. It features Cherry Blossoms, a national symbol of Japan and a reminder to appreciate the beauty of ephemeral things. These coins were minted from 1967-1988 and are copper-nickel. I curved the coin and applied a patina to make the details pop.

I made the band out of a silver (.900) US dime from before 1964. You have the option of preserving the writing on the US dime or we can do a hammered finish where no writing remains.

The main coin is slightly smaller than a US quarter.

Most of the skin contact is with the silver (.900) dime band.  The main coin contains copper and is unsealed.
