Here is one of my latest bangles, a Desert Ironwood with turquoise inlay over copper – size 8. I used some gemstone quality sleeping beauty turquoise and crushed it myself. This bangle has a new profile I have been trying which has some asymmetry. C&C welcome! Eric

Fine-looking bangle. I always wanted to try working with ironwood. The turquoise inlay goes well with the grain.

Absolutely gorgeous. Love it.

-- 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.

Really sharp looking. I’ll be picking up some of that turquoise soon.

Thanks Everyone! Ironwood is some tough stuff, but it takes a high polish.

That’s a great combination w/ the copper – may have have to copy that!
