The ring is made from walnut and I used bass guitar string (0.45) to inlay it. Bass guitar string was suitable because she wanted me to make it stick out. With guitar string you can “hide” it in the groove and beneath the finish so that the surface is flush.
Since I made a “How to make a bentwood ring videos” I got a lot of requests to show how to make an inlay. Here is the video how I did this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXkcadAlErc
The cuff next to it was more like a tryout but it turned out ok, so I incorporated that into the gift also.
