yeah there are two that i found the first is http://homepage.mac.com/johnhuber/CoinRing/PhotoAlbum20.html and the second which is pretty much the same but shows how to make it with a spoon is http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm?link_id=9878.  I don't have the patience to use a spoon but the guy at the coin shop said that legend is these were originally made by prisoner's with few materials and a lot of time on their hands.  thus the spoon.  Use coins with at least 90% silver otherwise you will be pounding for the next year  Smiley

I used to have a ring that my dad made out of a dime when he was high school. Sadly, I lost it.

Those will make great gifts!

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

That is CRAZY/awesome.  I'm going to have to go through my dad's tools and try to find some of the supplies to make one of those.  The end result is gorgeous!

I wouldn't worry about the illegal thing. Whilst it is techinically no-one really cares. Plus we even have those penny stretching machines so I'm sure you wouldn't get in trouble for it.
