So, whats the prize? It's a $25 gift certificate towards any of my personally handmade bangles. The one on the upper right is made of reclaimed walnut. I inlaid it with crushed white marble.
I turn each bangle on a lathe and sand them to a satiny smooth lustre. I make them in a variety of sizes. Here is one I did out of oak, cedar, and mahogany.
If you look closely, you will see it is made up of 5 different pieces of wood. I used very thin slices of mahogany veneer to frame in the cedar centerpiece.
If you win the gift certificate you might want to put it towards this one.....
Each bangle is one-of-a-kind. I created this little one using solid walnut, but when I did the inlay I used semi-precious stones, white marble, copper, and bits of sterling silver. Here is a little better picture of the inlay....
This next one is not nearly as fancy, but I really love the way it turned out. The oak grain really seems to pop and I think the shape is nice, don't you? The grain pattern reminds me of alligator skin and I have been told that animal prints are in this fall. Does it give you any ideas?
I don't as a rule show unfinished work, but I thought a few of you might want to see what I was working on today....
Solid walnut, inlaid with genuine turquoise gemstones, copper, and bits of sterling silver. It still needs to be sanded and finished but I am closing in on it. I had always wanted to embellish a project with turquoise. What do you think?
