Designer Nicholas Heckaman of The Ring Tree creates rings out of the most unassuming of materials — US coins. With a few heating processes, hammering and polishing, he forms classy looking rings that bear the original imprint of US coins. Looks like something you’d fancy having around your finger? Well, you can place an order from The Ring Tree’s Etsy page, but due to the large amount of orders he’s been receiving, the site is currently on vacation so it might be quite a wait before you get a coin around your fingers.
