This bentwood ring was created for a client who wanted to match two woods on an existing wooden watch for her husband…I’m lucky if my socks match… :)

That turned out very nice—most attractive.

Another beautiful ring Shannon, the Rosewood & Bamboo separated by the guitar string go together really well on the silver core. Looks like you are expanding your talent in using metal core which I think will expand your client base by quite a bit….keep up your innovative flair.
Thank goodness you have trouble matching socks too, thought i was the only one with that problem…:)

That ring is absolutely gorgeous! One of my favorite bentwood rings I have ever seen. Keep up the great work, love the rings.

  • a side note, not concerning the ring at all; are you using a light box and/or diffused lighting when taking your pictures. If not, you should look into it. I think it would do wonders for presenting your rings online. It would at the very least get rid of the sharp flash burn that’s present on most of the pics. Just some harmless suggestions, no insult of any kind is intended. take it for what it’s worth. Which some consider not very much ;) **

That is a stunning great marriage of woods, and the guitar string really set it off. I have to give Lew an A for his wisdom.
