This is an oak Bent Wood Bangle I have a method to coil and bend wood in a tight radius without it snapping. This offers many design opportunities to explore jewelry making, sculptural forms and also Holiday Ornaments. The bangle is tough and flexible at the same time. It would be very difficult to break and will last for years. You can wear it every day without fear of damaging it. The average inside diameter is 2 1/4 inches and the outside diameter is 3 inches and the wood thickness is 1/4 of an inch.
The best method to determine your size is to measure the inside diameter of a solid round bracelet that fits you comfortably. Another method to measure to make a paperboard sleeve that slides slide over your hand and then measure the inside diameter of the sleeve.

I began making wood jewelry in 2010. The process of bending wood is a new direction from my color pencil items. The creative process is so exciting and just by doing something new generates ideas.
