How to make a wood and hammered silver ring by Zebrano Wood Craft. In this DIY jewelry tutorial I will show you the process I used to make a ring with ancient bog oak and sterling silver.
This week I asked you guys on Instagram what I should use for my next project. The options were a bottle opener, acrylic off-cuts or a chunk of Bog Oak (don’t snigger). I can report that the majority of you voted for the bog oak so I decided to do what I do best and show you how I made this wood & hammered silver ring.
The piece of ancient oak was found preserved in a peat bog in the black forest area of Germany and is estimated to be at least 10,000 years old! To contrast the wood inside, the outside of the ring is sterling silver with a hammered texture and a patina from liver of sulphur.
I enjoyed this project and I hope it inspires you to make something too. The video will show you how to make a wooden ring, how to make a silver ring and how to combine them to make something truly unique!

The Finished Wood & Hammered Silver Ring
All in all I had a great afternoon in the workshop making this ring and I am absolutely in love with it! It’s the perfect fit and feels smooth against my skin. I’ve already received many compliments on it and even been asked to make one or two!
I think that the ring is cool but I’m actually more pleased with the edit on this video. I’ve finally come out of my shell and this is the bench mark for the type of content I will be producing from now on.
