I would probably drawl on it...

Alternatively you could do what mdntrdr suggested and make some box's not necessarily jewelry though. Alternatively some sort of inlay?

Looks good. Whatever you decide, that will look nice.

About 3/16" leaves enough room for sanding was sawing thin to try to get through the bark inclutions without wasting a lot of wood.

Played with some of it today

plained some down had some trouble with tearout and shattering (ran it through the wrong way) sanded some down and sprayed with lacquer. Looks beautiful will continue to play till we get it right.
