Wooden jewelry has a natural and elegant look that a lot of people appreciate. The designer uses a number of different types of wood to carve great looking pieces of jewelry, made with different patterns and designs. These wooden pieces of jewelry have the natural color of the wood or are colored artificially in some cases. These pieces of jewelry will be made according to different specs, to suit the needs and tastes of many people. When you make a piece of wooden jewelry, you need to pay attention to color, details and to the design.
The wood used for these pieces is either naturally or artificially seasoned, to make sure the jewelry has enough longevity in it. The natural type of seasoning is about wetting the wood, while the artificial seasoning is about keeping the wood in an environment that is controlled. There are two main types of wood that is used for jewelry, and they are classified as hardwood or softwood.
Softwood types include Poplar, Mongo, Haldu, Kadam and Cheed. Hardwood types include Rosewood, Sheesham, Teak and Ebony.
There are other sub-categories, under the hard and soft wood main categories. These subcategories are determined by the grain or the wood natural texture.
