Tamarisk Bangle

A friend of mine found some great Tamarisk (salt cedar) burl on his property and I traded him a bangle for a couple pieces. This is some really beautiful wood from a really ugly tree. It is hard to find nice bangle sized pieces due to the bark inclusions, but I really like the figure and grain so its worth the trouble. This is a copper size 8 bangle, finished with a thin coat of CA, followed by shellawax.

I have a free tutorial you can download to see how to make metal cored bangles, just visit this link. Thanks for looking. Eric
