I started out making 2 ironwood hair pins and then I was shown some shawl rings and decided to make these sets for the March craft show.
The rings are also ironwood.

They are finished with Danish Oil and then buffed and waxed.

Cheers, Jim

This is very nice! I like it because it steps beyond what is normally considered the right material for the intended purpose. Really original, Well done Jim!

That’s thinking out of the box. There may be a market for these. Try everything once right.
