These are pretty easy to do and the women like them. On this one the inlay came out really nice , it helps that the log was cracked just right. The inlay material I used this time was a little different . I used Turquoise , Malachite ,
Red Coral and few pieces of Jade. What I learned is that using a better mix of larger chips looks better and Jade is to hard to sand easily. The wood …Oak , the base was from the fire wood pile, it’s heavy enough to make a nice base. On others I have made them with brass rod and copper but the copper is much easier to work with.

Please take a look and let me know what you think even if its not your style , I like the feedback.

Not really my style, but it functions really well. What material is the earring portion made from? They inlay looks good, I agree that the larger chips seem to fit better with the piece.
Great Job

The earring holders are copper . 2 strands of 12 ga copper wire twisted together with a battery drill.

Interesting, it gives the wire a nice effect.

That is a very attractive work of art and the fact that is a useful item makes it all the more valuable. Good work.
