I made these bent wood bamboo matching ring and bracelet set. I am learning with every one I make. Fun project to do in this long N.Y. winter. These are inlayed with mother of peral shells ground up.

Hello quvia

Great work
What type of chuck did you use?

Thanks for sharing

This is a bent wood design and not done on a lathe.I made a cone shaped adapter to hold the finished bracelet to cut the grove in .it for the inlay .The bamboo veneer is bent around a dowel and glued with gel superglue. For the bracelet I went around the dowel about 4 times and sanded smooth before cutting the inlay. Hope this describes the process well enough.

Great Job! I like the inlay. What is the diameter of the bracelet?

The diameter is 3 inches and my wife says it could be about a half inch smaller. It is 3/4 inch wide also.

Looks good. I just finished two rings this week. I’m going to try to inlay glass on my next ring.

Did you use superglue to hold the inlay as well?

I use a 5 minuite epoxy for the inlay. I want to try glass also but I think it may be hard to final sand. The softer stone or shell seem to sand well. The clear epoxy must dry overnight before sanding. I put it on my wood dowel to sand also.

They’re very pretty. The pearl inlay looks great with the bamboo. I’m sure they’ll be hits for the ladies.

Have your say...
