Are you looking for keyring kits or is this something else?

No this is rings, finger rings. Have seen some made that were a ring of wood captured between two halves of metal which screw together to hold the wood in place. Love the idea of it but cant find where one would get the metal sections

Is this (http://www.bangleguy.com/RIng_Supplies.html) the kind of thing you are looking for? Not sure if you can get it locally, but you could get some shipped over.

You could try making 'bentwood' rings - they don't need a metal core. You can google 'how to make a bentwood ring' for any number of videos and tutorials. It's on my bucket list ...

Does it have to screw/unscrew? I'm imagining a piece of wood sandwiched between 2 plates of aluminium would have the same effect?

That has to be what was being asked for.
