Sometimes I have to help my wife put her bracelets on, as some of them are harder than others.
She also sells Avon and she showed me a product in the book that helped people put on their bracelets alone.
I figured, that’s a great idea, I should make something like this out of wood.
I made several, some with alligator clips and others using a hook that I got from some pierced earrings.
I drilled micro holes at the end of some different styles of wood to insert the holder.
I even made a jig to make my own beads.
One of them even looks like a pencil.
My favorite ones are the “tongue depressor” styles, one with pure maple and the others with maple and walnut.
I guess I’m going to have to make a lot more of these, as her friends see them the word will get out fast.
I put a coat of tung oil on them and paste wax.
Let me know what you think.
Thanks for looking.
