In 2016 I set up Celtic Coin Craft here in a little village along the Wexford coast in Ireland.
I first saw a coin ring in 2013, and was fascinated by it and and couldn't figure out how it had been made. I did loads of research, got some basic tools and soon made my first coin ring. I was hooked. I really enoyed the process which required lots of patience and consistency and spent hours making dozens of rings using a rawhide mallet and ring mandrel.
Over the next year, I raided the savings to buy more specialised tools and I honed my craft; tapping away for hours using the hammer and mandrel was replaced by a more controlled process resulting in better quality rings.
After showing my work to friends and family they convinced me to start selling the rings. I moved out of the shed into a dedicated workshop and now here I am with a website and a busy social media presence.
In the years since I started making them in the garden shed, I've sent thousands of coin rings to happy customers all over the world.
Right from the start I have had two goals that underpin all of my work, everyday:
1. To craft the highest quality rings, made from the best coins.
2. To listen, explain and be actively engaged with my customers so that I provide the best customer service.
If you have any questions about coin rings or would like a ring made from a particular coin, please get in touch.
