These are a couple of wood bracelets that I made on my mini lathe in Az. the first one is Osage Orange and there were a pair of them but one was sent to my mother and the other one was sold recently at tour RV park show in Casa Grande,Az.
The second one is from Arizona willow. I hope that one does not crack like the egg cup made from the other half of the log.That is shown in the 3rd and 4th pictures.

Like the bracelets.

SWMBO must want something like this, ever since I got the lathe I keep finding books on “Turning Wooden Jewelery” in with my reading matter.

I just stink at spindle work and can not get the bracelet bead balanced, I need to spend a weekend practicing, that.

Those bracelets are beautiful this I have also to try when I feel more confident on the lathe, my beloved Caroline would be so happy.

epoxy dyed black would fill that crack marvelously and save the piece for eternity

Hey Chuck, my wife does not wear bracelets so I sell the ones I don’t give away as presents.
