The major ingredient in Allred's jewelery is manzanita hardwood that
contains beautiful grains.  To keep the wood stable and prevent cracking, it
goes through a researched process of curing to prepare it for sculpting with
various tools and extensive handwork.

the luster, color, and beauty of this special wood.

The manzanita is creatively combined with metals, (particularly, copper, that
complements the wood), stone, jewelery findings and sometimes other
