This Guy Turned A Pack Of Colored Pencils Into A Beautiful Ring

ADVERTISEMENT

Peter Brown, a woodworking aficionado from California, created a small and simple but playful wooden jewelry piece that has found him more popularity than he can manage. After gluing together a carton of wooden pencils and shaping them into a colorful ring, Brown found himself flooded with requests to make more of his handmade jewelry.

Brown started by gluing all of the pencils together into a brick two pencils thick. He then drilled a hole through the size of his finger and cut out a rough outer form with a band saw before putting the ring on a lathe to finish it. The result is a colorful cross-section of the pencils, their leads, and of the wood they’re enclosed in. He may have taken a page out of the book of Maria Cristina Belucci, who also creates unique jewelry out of colored pencils.

After information about his work, Brown is struggling to catch up to the sudden rise in demand for his cool jewelry. A notice on his Etsy shop reads, “I just bought some supplies to make my rings in bulk and better quality. I expect a couple of weeks before all the supplies arrive and I verify the process. The last thing I want to do is sell you something cheap or flimsy.

There is a beast with heart of cold stone that dashes like lightning, shreds flesh from bone. // Bewitched by this beast, I fell to my knees. My mouth babbled madness and mumbled soft pleas. // I stared down the ravenous, gnashing dark maw of a cute cuddly kitten with yarn in its paw
