Wood sculpture and jewelry inlaid with semi-precious gemstones and minerals

https://www.facebook.com/eriksw…

I use Northwest burl wood and inlay stone, mineral and metal. Once I combine these elements I make jewelry pieces in the classic cabochon forms wrapped in silver, and sculptures in the likeness of natural geometric shapes. I do all the work myself and use all salvaged, scrap or drift wood from the Pacific Northwest. I use all non-toxic glues and finishes and get most of my stone and metals from reclaimed sources and my own modest gatherings.
