These earrings are made from walnut and maple. I stacked the two woods and then cut them on my new scrollsaw. The inlay is the Kanji symbol for luck. They have a simple finish of boiled linseed oil. They are 1-1/4” in diameter by @ 1/8” thick. My goal is to begin producing wood jewelry to sell. Anyone else make jewelry and have any recommendations for pricing?

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I just started scrolling. This is my third attemp at making jewelry items. The first two failed because of big gaps. I purchased some very small drill bits and some high quality blades, Swiss made I believe. I’m using 2/0 skip tooth blades, if I remember correctly. The blades made all the difference.
