Reclaimed wood off-cut from larger wood projects. I’m almost sure this is some kind of New Zealand wood, maybe puriri. But it’s very dark, even for puriri. It’s almost certainly riverwood.

At one angle the wood is so dark it’s almost black. However, once you get it into the sun and turn it, it takes on a beautiful copper/bronze sheen.

Inlay is cow bone.

Looks good to me Lynne.
Should I warn Andybb not to think that you used Crow bone?

Excellent work on the ring and first photo ! Good thought on your part to break up the gray.

Thanks a lot! I actually hadn’t thought about breaking up the bone; this usually happens with inlays unless you basically crush it into a powder. Because this was bone, I wanted to use bigger pieces. Nice to know someone sees the gaps as a pro, rather than a con :)

I think Fresch meant the green plant under the ring to separate it from the gray background. Excuse me if I’m wrong.
