Alumilite Cholla Women's Bracelet

Here are some pictures from my latest project making a woman's bangle (bracelet) from a alumilite cast piece of cholla and a stainless steel metal core. I started with a 4" cast cholla puck that I purchased from a fellow who sells it for turkey calls. I then used hole saws to cut the bangle blank, bored the ID to size, cut to width and glued the blank onto the SS core for support. After curing, I roughed the OD to size, filled some voids with CA and then began the same CA finish technique used on pens.

I have a 14 page tutorial that explains the process in detail. I will email the tutorial for free if you send me an email to [email protected] with an email address. Its a 2Mb PDF file.


Thanks for looking.
Eric

Hello Eric!

'Nother home run, I see!

I can vouch for the tutorial and the maker, high-class stuff here!

p

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?
