Touch Wood

The concentric rings found within a tree's trunk tell us the story of its lifecycle, from seed, to sapling, to towering giant. These gorgeous, arboreal rings pay homage to these natural giants as they allow you to commemorate life's many milestones.

These earthy rings are fabricated using a traditional Scandinavian technique that involves steam bending the wood in response to its natural grain. (In an effort to stay true to tradition, artisans actually fabricate many of the tools used!) To create each ring, the wood is heated and cooled to form the ring structure, and then files, knives and calipers are used to shape the ring. The wood's natural oils are replaced with a polymer in order to give each piece strength, durability and enduring beauty.

To give rings a rich, professional polish, artisans sand and shine every piece by hand. As the artisans go through the ring-making process, the use of tools becomes less necessary, so the final tool used to finish the ring is simply the hand of its maker. Handmade by James Nord in South Dakota.
