Next step is to burn the circles with a torch until the surface is blistered, much like Crocodile skin to look at.

This technique is knows as Shou Sugi Ban, an ancient Japanese method of preserving wood. Then we brush the charred wood off with an abrasive wheel.

At this point Dave hands over the wooden rings to Shalini to make into jewellery.

The beautiful rustic wooden earrings are dyed with a water based wood stain and then polished using  Renaissance Wax.The colour is “Ruby” a dark red, very rich and luxurious colour.

These are the same colours used in the tea-light holders, coasters and Incense burners.
