Five Rings made of BC woods.

With the arrival of people from all over the world to British Columbia this month ~ I thought it would be fun to feature 5 Touch Wood Rings that incorporate BC woods or have a BC theme.

This set of rings was designed by a BC couple to represent the mountains around Pemberton. The primary wood is beautifully figured Bethlehem Olive wood. Their rings are lined with BC Birch wood.

The photograph above was taken on one of David's small handcrafted boxes. The box is made of reclaimed Bug Killed Pine from our own property. This is the same reclaimed wood that was used in the making of the Richmond Olympic Oval.

Our Juniper heartwood is from the Similkameen Valley of British Columbia. You'll find lots of examples of Touch Wood Rings made of and incorporating Juniper heartwood. Here are two examples.

And below; a BC Apple Wood Ring. This wood also comes from the Similkameen Valley of British Columbia.

Finally, a February sunset over the meadow where Touch Wood Rings are created.
Welcome to British Columbia.
