This ring is a handcrafted bentwood ring made from walnut wood with a stainless steel insert. All of my rings are handmade by me, in my studio, from sustainably harvested natural woods. Although rings may be made of the same wood species, no two are exactly alike. Wood grain is like a fingerprint in this regard, and each of my rings is unique and individual. When you purchase one of my rings, you are truly purchasing a one-of-a-kind, piece of art.

Each ring is handcrafted using "bentwood" techniques to heat or steam the wood to allow it to be bent. I make my own wood veneers used in the manufacture of my rings. After shaving the wood veneer to precise thickness, the veneer is steamed, bent to size on a mandrel, stabilized and sanded resulting in extraordinary strength and a stunning display of the wood's beautiful qualities. If embellishments such as colored opal, guitar string or another medium are to be added, it is at this stage where this is done.

I use two distinct finishes on my rings, depending on what a customer wants. The majority of my rings are meticulously finished using 10 coats of durable and long-lasting cyanoacrylate to protect the ring and its natural beauty. Alternatively, some customers prefer a UV acrylic finish which is also available upon request. After the finish is applied, I follow up with a hand polished compound to protect the smooth finish and enhance the shine.

If for whatever reason your ring does not fit when you receive it, I will resize the ring for free. Just contact me within 30 days of receiving your ring. If it is past 30 days or you need the ring resized for a second time, there is a $15 charge.

If you have an idea for a custom ring design, need a special size or specific wood(s), please don’t hesitate to ask. Rings are available with brass, copper, stainless steel or celluloid inserts. If you require a specific size for a custom order, I can send a ring sizer to help you determine the correct size or you may visit a jeweler to help determine your ring size. Please measure carefully, as custom orders are non-refundable. Rings that need to be remade will incur additional charges.

* Ring Care *
Although your ring is made from wood, it is okay to get your ring wet from time to time such as washing your hands or bathing. If your hands are going to be submerged in water for extended periods, or when engaging in activities where the ring could be scratched, it is best to remove it. Occasionally you may wish to coat the ring in a natural beeswax-based product.

* Shipping *
My processing time is normally two weeks; however, some orders may ship a little faster than that. I make each order individually as received. Standard shipping within the U.S. is free via USPS Priority Mail.
