I like the rings you have been showing. I always take a close look at the wood in each ring. Nice!

These are beautiful! I agree with Bud_3…the first one is a solid piece of art. I’d like to know if you are using silver powders for your inlays and what mesh it is. Or is that a solid loop ? A bent band? I am curious….it’s so perfect.

Thank you so much! For my Inlays I prefer to use silver powders but for the sake of cost efficiency I use sterling silver wire, the only downside Is that no matter how well you secure the Inlay It can potentially pop out, hence why I prefer using powders.

The woods used In that particular ring are Paduak and Ebony, both woods are real veneers which have been steamed and coiled around a circular object and allowed to dry In that shape so they’re easier to work with.

Have your say...
