Handmade ring made of yew wood, size 10 US.
Yew grows very slowly and its wood is very hard. It’s a very fine european wood and it is hard to find right now. I found it thanks to a friend who is gardener. The piece I used comes from the hills nearby Bologna, from a tree that got some branch broken after a strong storm.
It’s a kind of magic wood, often related to witches. In ancient times it was also one of the best woods and also very often used to build weapons for armies.
Its fruits and leaves are also poisonous.The tree grows from insite to outside, like independents branches, when the old part die another branch keeps growing. Because of these characteristics it is considered the tree of life and death: it can kill, but it represents life that goes on and on.
Yew wood is not poisonous and it doesn’t give allergies as metal rings do.
It is resistant and waterproof. If it gets a little bit opaque because you wet it (for years!) you can easily treat it with a little bit of olive oil or lineseed oil or wax and it will be exactly as new.
It is a unique piece, part of a limited collection made by different sizes. If it doesn’t fit your size write me because I can have some more sizes ready.
