    Going on the site provided by Rob's link and the other examples are just stunning! I cannot imagine how they accomplish this art form!

    Those are cool! It looks like a little resin casting on the end of a broken board, like Les does with his pens, which I assume they stabilized the board first to keep the ring from splitting at the bottom.

    Cool ring.
    Not meaning to hijack your thread, but here is a nice looking ring kit that I ran across. I don't know the seller, but the ring looks great.

    I also see where P.S.I.has a ring kit in the 15$ range, I have no idea of the quality though. Would make a nice project for a special piece of wood.
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Assuming you got the French text: Mais a bien regarde, the secret of these mysterrious jewels is even more astonishing, because the little worlds are formed by the irregularities of the wood of the structure of the ring, covered in a coloured resin. Sometimes he adds beeswax to give the illusion of a snow scene.

    If that helps.
