This was my first try at turning a bracelet on the lathe. Made of Monkey Pod and Mango. It was a complete circle till I dropped it on the concrete floor of my shop, about 5 mins after I finished it! It cracked in 2 places so I had no choice but to cut out a section.

Great looking bracelet. Don’t you just love it when that happens.
I wonder what you said at that moment??

Consider it an expansion joint! My first wedding ring developed one. Unfortunately it didn’t expand enough…
