handmade wooden bangles

IMG_1407
I am a little obsessed with bangle bracelets and recently had the bright idea to use my handy wood burning tool to create some unique wooden bangles. While I could have used store bought wood bracelets, I decided to get really creative and use tiny embroidery hoops for my bangles. They are the perfect size for my wrist!

1. I separated the hoop and used the inside piece. 2. Next I used my wood burning tool and burned designs into the surface of the wood.

1. Next I used a variety of wooden beads 2. and burned designs into the surface of each one. 3. I used stretchy cord and strung my beads into a bracelet.

  8. Fantastic idea! Beautiful work! I also really enjoyed your beautiful sand pictures. I am reminded of the quilting art of trapunto with the puffy looking sand.

    One question: what is the inside diameter? I have a very small wrist and often have problems with bangles being too large. Can you give that size to us?? Thank you! Going over to Twitter to retweet right now!
