For me, it was a matter of construction. I wanted something fast and easy. That could go together in one simple session, if need be. And that was solid core with no moving parts. I have broken more prototypes than I care to think of.
So here’s one that is solid core, didn’t break, sanded and finished up. It’ll be a gift for my Mom so I’ve snapped a picture before it goes to it’s new (and more appreciative) home.
The bangle also showcases some of my recent canework and uses a brown base since the current fashion trend (probably ending since I noticed it) seems to call for browns and turquoises and creams.
