Project Information

Hi Lumberjocks! This time I bring you another jewelry project (it's been some months since the last one). I wanted to share and show how I craft another type of stone inlay using solid wood (boxwood which it's really hard specie) and lapislazzuli (stone).

Please, leave me a comment if you're interested on more jewelry projects.

If you have any questions, I'll be pleased to answer them.


Don't forget to subscribe to my channel if you haven't yet.

Regards from Barcelona!

Very pretty, i think the only other time I've heard of lapis lazuli is in the Old Testament, very cool to see what it looks like.

Very nice. One question, when you sand the stone after gluing into the wood, what grit did you start with?

Thanks Notw. Actually, it's a gorgeous stone to work with. It has quite deep and intense blue, which contrast with any kind of wood. Regards!

I recommend you to start about 60/80 grit. Don't be too aggressive or the piece will overheat, which increases the risk of cracks (especially if you're working with small portions of solid wood).

Great job, the lapis lazuli and boxwood look really good together. I also really liked the video. My only concern is the amount of lapis lazuli that is wasted by grinding it down. Maybe if you crushed the stone into smaller pieces first then you would not lose as much in the grinding.

Thanks for sharing your techniques.

Hi leafherder! Thanks for your comment. It maybe seem that I lose some lapis lazuli while grinding it but actually I only spend one mini-stone to make that ring (and it left over a half of it). Besides, I have about 80 pieces like this of lapislazuli which cost me about 3$ and I asume those will last me for a very long time. Anyway, I appreciate your concern. Regards!
