I finally made it back into the shop tonight and finished a bangle that I had started a month ago. Shees! I will be glad when fall comes so I can let up on the yard work :)

This is a women’s size 8 copper (wide) and alumilite potted cholla bangle. I finished it using CA and the foam wiper method with 8000 grit MM and polished with EEE. I sure like applying CA with crafters foam.

Very nice!
Do they make a metal core set like that for rings?

Thanks all. I really like the look of the Cholla cactus. I sell the metal bangle cores and cholla blanks on my website. I am trying to develop a line of metal ring cores for this fall.
