I started making a few wood pendants and beads, used on on leather, hemp or metal necklaces, bracelets, hair clips(girl stuff. I’ve even seen a few girls who I gave wood rings to use them in their hair as a tie of to cover a tie. Whatever they want lol….gotta keep the ladies happy). Using a solid piece of wood is where I’m at, but soon I will try laminating veneer to another hardwood(if you try, remember when laminating you want an odd number of layers so the piece does not warp, so I would throw veneer on the face and back.) The few pendants I have shown here still need a hole drilled through them but still you see what I’m attempting. I also put a Starburst in a few pics for size reference. The first one is solid Lacewood, (Australian Oak) and it is very beautiful stuff!! I also made a matching wood bead from the same wood, but this would be more for a piece made of hemp. The third pendant is Zebrawood, which is also very pretty. Both have 2 coats of tung oil and one coat of semi-gloss. Hope this gives some ideas and helps someone who needs to make a last minute of gift lol.

I also think this make be easier to work my first try at inlays. Nice flat surface seems simpler than starting on a ring.

I’d like to see the finished piece, the necklace, cord and etc.
Lacewood is pretty.
Thanks for sharing.
Inlays are pretty easy on a ring, If I can help let me know.
