This Twisted Blue Bangle is handmade on a Lathe. Then it goes through several secondary operations at the studio bench. After the bangle form is complete a lot of bench time is spent on secondary operations. These include carving and sanding the design. Next I apply several layers of different color paint. This bangle features a milk paint finish to create the retro look.
The inside diameter is 2 1/2 inches and an outside diameter of 3 1/2 inches. If you are searching for a solid bangle the most effective method to determine your size is by measuring a solid round bracelet you are comfortable wearing.
I began producing wood jewelry in 2010 with wood pendants and necklaces, Next was bangles, brooches and earrings. I love making bangles because there are so many styles and techniques to employ in the design. With this piece I start with a oversized ring and then carve the twist. I apply a layer of yellow milk paint and then cover the yellow with blue paint. When dry I sand the high spots on the blue paint until the yellow shows through.
