By definition, a conductor of any kind, passed through a magnetic field, will have a voltage induced in it. To create such an inductance, the conductor (inductor) can be moved through the magnetic field or the magnetic field can be moved through the conductor. That is how twisted pair wiring works (the more twists to cut the fields, the more induced voltage), as well as all other induced voltage. The measure of inductance is the henry.
