No need to be offended. It is what it is.

As some of you are aware, I do not really work on traditional jewelry anymore due to the nature of my job. However, I have taken up woodworking over the past few years and recently combined my hobbies to make this fun ring for my wife.

It is made from cocobolo wood, which is quite dense and durable. The stone is a 12mm rose cut quartz mounted upside down. I didn't really have a plan when I started this, it just kind of organically came to be as I went along. :D

Astounding! I love the melding of the mediums.

First time I saw it was with Seaman Schepps. Have you seen his pieces?

I'm familiar with his work and appreciate the skill (far beyond my own), but am not a fan of the design aesthetic. Ymmv. I've often thought that there is opportunity for wider spread use of mixed media in retail jewelry. Most examples seem to be designed as art pieces.

For me, Schepps screams mid-century modern. Not a look for everyone.

I prefer your designs.

Contiguous colour aloft minimal metal,
