OUR STORY

Bentwood fusion jewelry made by hand in Nova Scotia

Founded by husband and wife artists, Laurel and Allan Hill, Northwood has been in the business of creating and perfecting bentwood rings since 2012. Over the past eight years we began blending our love of wood and other natural materials with more traditional jewelry techniques and precious metals, resulting in wood fusion jewelry designs unique only to Northwood, and the processes we’ve created.  

Together, we create modern, sustainable and one-of-a-kind designs for our customers around the world and we can help you design the piece you’ve been dreaming of.

Ethically Sourced. Ethically Made. Beautifully Crafted.

We love creating beautiful wooden rings for our customers, but even more than that, we love knowing that with a little extra effort we can not only avoid causing harm to others, but help lift our community and our world towards a better future. 

Every Northwood Ring is made by our skilled artisans in our workshop on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada where they earn a living wage for their excellent work.

Our materials are sourced from companies that are committed to the environment and to the working conditions of their own employees.

Our gold is 100% SCS certified recycled. Our wood materials are chosen carefully and considered for their beauty and sustainability. And our gemstone rings are offered in Lab-Created or ethically sourced options only.

“The role of the designer is that of a good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests.”

– Charles Eames

how it’s made

Forged In-House:
Hand Crafted Gold & Wood Rings

Using 100% SCS Certified Recycled Gold, we make our wooden rings from the very beginning to the polished end. 

It’s important to know where your jewelry is coming from and how it’s made. These days most jewelry stores carry mass-produced items pushed out by machines in the tens of thousands. While these pieces may look great, there’s no way of knowing what the conditions of the workforce are like. Or whether they are using metal from mines that are destroying the land around them. 

In our studio, we pay attention to every detail. We melt our own gold that we receive from a supplier that takes part in the Earth First Initiative and uses only SCS Certified recycled gold. We have a small, dedicated staff who receive a living wage for their craftsmanship.  And we’re hands on with all of our customers. You can give us a call and talk to our team about your ring – make changes that suit you, or ask your questions to someone who is involved in the process right from the start so you’ll receive a knowledgeful answer.

Ebony
Macassar Ebony - Southeast Asia: A beautiful dark red to black toned wood. Great with vibrant colours like turquoise or malachite.

*We are currently using the lighter woods from our Macassar Ebony to achieve this color as Roasted English Oak that is workable for bentwood has become hard to find. Colors range from medium to dark brown and nearly black tones.
Grey Maple
Sugar Maple - Canada: We use the same maple as our regular maple listing, but achieve a beautiful greyed colour by soaking the wood in iron acetate to achieve a weathered silver look.
Santos Rosewood
South America (Brazil and Bolivia): Not a true rosewood, and the same wood as our Pau Ferro, we use the santos name to differentiate the more red tone of this wood from the yellow tones of our Pau Ferro.
Pau Ferro
South America (Brazil and Bolivia): The same as our Santos Rosewood (although not a true rosewood), we use the Pau Ferro name to differentiate the more yellow tone of this wood from the red tones of our Santos.

American Elm
Eastern to Midwest United States: Tones range from a toasted caramel to light creamy white in the sapwood

Hawaii: Vibrant golden tones ranging to reddish hues make this one of our customers most favorite wood choices.
American Black Walnut
Eastern United States: Walnut ranges from a pale brown to a deep chocolate brown and every shade between. Can have color casts of yellow, grey, purple or red.
Elm Burl
Western Europe: The grain in a burled tree is caused by some form of stress or injury to the tree, but creates a pattern that is beautiful to look at. Colors range from medium to dark brown with small figures of color patterns changing throughout.
Canadian Maple
Sugar Maple - Canada: Light and bright in color, our sugar maple comes from Canada and is a beautiful warm creamy white tone ranging to a light honey shade.

None of the woods we use are listed in the CITES appendices as being threatened or endangered. Macassar Ebony is listed on the IUCN Red List as being vulnerable due to a decline in it’s natural range. 

We source most of our woods from craftspeople and artisans with pieces too small for their own use. In this way we feel we can create beautiful rings without contributing to their decline.
