There are many coin ring tutorials out there. Most demonstrate how to convert a coin into a band ring while still keeping the coin's stamped surface features intact.

But this Russian metalsmith, creates his lovely flower ring complete with leaves, from two coins. He uses what looks like silver coins for their metal content.

He melts down one to make a simple bar which is then filed into a neat shape and rolling milled flat before being soldered into a band. The second one is simply flattened in the mill. He then cuts out the botanical shapes which is then soldered together as well as to the band.

He created this on his makeshift balcony workshop. At the time he posted his demonstration, his city of Samara was under lockdown due to Covid-19!

Craftsmen and craftswomen manage well under self-isolation at home because they can keep busy with hobbies and so on. In the case of this artisan of Bonn Factory,  the delicate flower ring is quite a departure from his usual brutalist style.
