Nice work. I gave it a shot one time to make something like this. It sure does take real talent to do it!

These rings are gorgeous! I’ve been wanting to make my wife a birthstone ring and these have given my the inspiration to start experimenting! I’ve been reading your posts and comments, thank you for all the info on wooden rings! I was wondering where you get your stones for the inlays, I’ve been searching and can’t find a good source for crushed gems. Any tips will be much appreciated! Happy woodworking!

thedocjon: Thank you for the kind words!

We get many of our raw material for crushed inlay from a few select sellers on Etsy.
(Turquoise, malachite, Paua shell, pearl, etc.)

Have a look around Let me know if you can’t find what you’re after and I can put you in touch with a couple of sellers directly.

Take care!
