This one is sold already.

Thank you for checking it out.

The Finish looks much better in person; my camera booth needs more work. From Straight on there are reflections but from close up this CA finish is beautiful.

Thank you Hoss and Dave!

*Dave, the reddish portion is rose colored mica powders mixed in with Alumilite Resin. The actual wood is the yellowish/tan/brown that you see. This is from the Jumping Cholla cactus and is generally very fibrous or porous however when you cast it with Alumilite is fills the voids and provides a very neat looking solid product to work with.

That is really awesome, great choice of colors.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Another beautiful bangle JR_Dog. I love it!
I know exactly what you mean by the finish looking better in person but I think your photographs are top notch. I imagine photographing the mix of metal and wood makes it even more difficult to do the project justice.

Another absolutely gorgeous bracelet! Sometimes a camera just can’t capture the true essence of wood, but it looks great.

Marvelous ring! The gorgeous wood really sparkles with the silver, no wonder it was sold out. Awesome work!
