In a little reverse tree-hugging action, Gustav Reyes crafts rings from salvaged wood like felled trees, baseball bats and church pews. If a thing mattered to you (and it came from a tree), he can make a ring from it. Reyes puts it best on his blog: “Wood holds within it its past life; the energy it took to grow is still present within its every fiber.” When you’re choosing the materials, you can get as sentimental or badass as you want. Our favorite: New Zealand’s Ancient Kauri wood, trapped during the Ice Age, inlaid with a fossilized piece of T-Rex skull. Wrapped around your finger.
