Finished a few more steel core metal rings, first was a ammonia fumes eucalyptus, she wanted a dark wood and I didn’t have ebony so figured I would try this, had a nice dark color to it, second 2 are koa for my brother inlaw, his wife wanted matching rings before his deployment, she wanted to have endure written on it, so after Alot of experimentation from writing in on the wood ourself to ink transferring, finally figured out how to make a home made decal and inlaying it under the acrylic, the decal is almost invisible but I wish it was a little harder to see (the photo actually makes it easier to see then it really is). Lastly a paduak ring for one of my friends sons birthday, think I finally got these things figured out, they are getting easier with better results.

Actually I spent about 2 hours perusing through previous LJ ring projects and blogs to give the appropriate credit to whom ever first posted this idea, but I cannot find where it was that I saw this so I apologize to the person taht gave me this idea, but I bought a stainless steel “worry ring” or spinning ring ( the chain ones are the best since they have a deeper recess) cut the spinner out and bent the inlay into the recess being very precise on sizing and cautious on getting it to look seamless. I haven’t tried the cores from bangle guys yet and they seem better and worst then this tactic for a few reasons, pro’s easier to get seamless looks since you are using a small block of wood, but with this tactic you can use veneers (being picky about getting a good section for the ring) and you can have the interior comfort fitted which I like a lot. Both techniques work well and cost about the same, need to find the original creator because its nice to have options.
