At Coral Covey we are making a huge effort to source our materials from refineries that source existing silver and gold primarily from industry. That’s why we are happy to show our support for this amazing documentary featuring  the practices used in many of Ghana’s gold mines- These two enterprising film makers, Stuart Harmon and Paula Ely began filming two teen miners – Justice and Maxwell – as well as an activist on the front lines of trying to stop the child labour epidemic, James Bingo. They filmed and documented their experiences discovering a story that sheds new light on the disturbing world of precious metal mining developing nations such as Ghana, Africa’s second largest producer of gold.

“Around the world, nearly one million children work in mining*. Because of their small size, they are sometimes employed on small-scale sites to work in the most dangerous parts of the mining – underground. Most lack basic safety equipment, and the mineshafts are poorly reinforced and ventilated, causing deadly cave-ins. In addition, mercury is used in the processing of gold ore, poisoning the children and the land around them. Despite the dangers, many impoverished families in Ghana depend on the income brought in from their children. As a result, many children drop out of school at an early age, giving them few employment option outside of mining when they grow up.”

The film is still in the editing phase but we will be sure to let you know once it is completed and hits the silver screen. Keep you posted!

For further information, videos and write ups on this documentary, check out the offical Money Stone Website or follow the film’s development on Facebook.

The gold mines are tight shafts with no ventilation and often badly reinforced resulting in cave ins being a common occurrence.

Many boys in Ghana have no choice but to drop out of school and work in the gold mines.

Mercury is used to separate the gold from other materials. As a result it pollutes waterways and poisons communities.

I’m pleased to report that they did reach their goal of $25,000 and the film is now is post production. Due for release in 2017. Congratulations guys! Can’t wait to see it!

Thanks for your interest in Coral Covey. Let me know a little bit more about what you are looking for.

None of your personal data will be shared with a third party.


Thanks for your interest in my Ring Making Workshops. These are a really fun way to make your own wedding bands or make a ring for a friend.

For this particular workshop we need two half days of approx 3-4 hours. I will guide you both through what is possible, and then I assist you in carving the rings for each other.

– In the first class, we will meet at my workshop in The Nicholas Building and I will size you both and teach you both the art of wax carving the ring to the correct size.
– 2-3 weeks later, at the second meeting, you will learn to file and finish the rings together using classic jewellery techniques, tools and materials.
– You are not required to have any prior skills, materials or tools.
All of this is provided for you.

My price for the two half days is $790. Please note this is for both of you and that these are weekdays, however this does not cover the cost of the rings.

The price of the ring itself will be determined by three factors:
– material
– finger ring size
– band thickness
