Decided to dust off and polish a few rings that haven't seen daylight in quite awhile. Going to wear them again. One at a time! My favorite is the silver and turquoise one.

I'll bet a few of you have archery rings. Let's see whatcha got.

Jim, as far as I know, the four NFAA rings were designed by Stew Foster. I don't know who made the silver and turquoise ring, but it is possible it was Stew Foster. I inherited these from Hugh Rich, who was a friend of Stew.

I’m not a ring wearing person but I like the middle NFAA ring.

Nice looking rings, but I can barely keep track of the ones I already wear.

Learned a new trick at an Army reunion this weekend. Never knew it was possible to open beer bottles with my college ring.

Just want to clear up a few things. There is no doubt Stew Foster designed, made, and sold the NFAA rings like the 2 on the left.

8.jpg 

The other two he may have made. The small silver one has the initials JLY on one side. These are the initials of John Leroy Yount, the longtime secretary-treasurer of the NFAA. The ring looks like it came from the same hands as the other two. The gold and the silver and turqoise rings, I want to say, yes, Stew Foster did make those, but that's just a guess.

I don’t have any, but I bought my wife this ring that is an arrow bent around in a circle!

Does this count? Bow kill antelope horn turned on my lathe into ring. Needs buffing and new coat of finish.

Bob's wife does not make jewelry! That's his daughter Kamden that makes the jewelry and sets up at the big shoots along side him. And no, she did not make this. It is a James Avery piece.


Jack, that one is really neat!!!

Thanks Bisch its actually translucent when it is cleaned up, finding a good finish that last on natural material rings like wood and bone has been a choir. I work in hospital and was hands a lot so far the finishes I have tried do not hold up.

Anyone make any wood, bone, horn jewelry? if so what finish has worked for you

Wow! I’ve heard of that ring, but have never seen a photo.

Stew Foster was a charter member of my home club, the Pasadena Roving Archers. He designed our club logo & the logo of the CBH (California Bowmen Hunters).

I’m currently the President of the PRA & hope to some day come across one of these rings for sale to add to our club’s historical collection.

Would it be possible that you could send me a few more photos of the sides & profiles of each of those rings? Would love to post them on our webpage.

Thanks in advance!

I made this for my mother! It is made from Michigan Flint, which I picked up while visiting!!!
I have made many neck pieces, knives, tomahawks, even animal heads!!
The head is much thinner than it appears!!!
