New AD IDEM Rings: Installment #2

The oak tree stands
noble on the hill even in
cherry blossom time

(a haiku by Basho)

All AD IDEM, all the time, as of late. These three one-of-a-kind rings are made of hickory--the remnants of bent wood from my bracelets--inlaid with purpleheart and rosewood. 

These rings honor the joining, the ethics and honesty of woodworking. I look to the tradition of Japanese joinery, particularly: elements measured, cut, planed, and sanded in a precise manner. Here I'm celebrating the idea of this elegant function as minimalist adornment.
