Well it is that time of the year again when I start to make things for Christmas. This is just a simple set for one of my sisters as she loves wooden jewelry and also I made her a box a while back so need something to fill it(not that any woman needs an excuse)

The necklace has a magnetic clasp fitted

C&C Welcome

Nicely done. Buddy and I here at work have been tinkering with this stuff. How are you cutting those things out? Getting nice circles outta such small pieces?

Thank you both for the comments.

All the bits are turned and drilled on the lathe mainly using a faceplate with a scrap of wood attached then the jewelry wood fitted to that mainly using double sided tape and very light cuts. The earings are 3/4” across
