It’s been awhile since I posted anything so here we go. The two piece pendants are cherry, the outside and inside from two different trees with wildly different grain and character. The odd ball one is of course walnut.

Haven’t added lathe work to my skill set yet, but can’t picture how you turn these. A few words of explanation would be great, esp. in terms of how to work so small. Thanks.

Thanks all.

Kevin, all of the small pieces are held onto a waste block on the lathe with double sided tape. My secret weapon. Light cuts and small tools for example a 3/8” detail gouge help keep from having the pieces come loose.

I like them. I am making my daughter a pendant out of a burl. How do you keep the leather strap in?

rmoore, you can look around online on how to make a jewelry eyelet, drill a small in the pendant and sink the eyelet in some epoxy and then use what is called a “jump ring”. That’s how I did it anyways. If you need anymore help post a pic and I’ll try to help.

P.S. You can probably buy eyelets where ever you find the jump rings. Most craft stores should have those things.
