Finished commission: New Zealand rewarewa wood with bone and pounamu/NZ greenstone inlays.

Rewarewa is one of only two species in the Protea family in New Zealand, and easily recognisable by its pale to dark reddish color and flecked appearance.

The Kiwiest ring of them all! :p

The ring is lathe turned, then hand finished.

Beautiful ring. I’ve been seeing your work for a while and always wondered how you turn out such a quality product. I just started on the lathe and now I feel inspired/challenged to give ring making a try. Thank you for sharing!

No worries. Have fun. It’s a bit of a learning curve, but very satisfying once you get it down. Best tip: sharp chisels!
