This is my first attempt at a bangle bracelet. It is Black Ash Burl and was finished with a CA finish and polish. I purchased the stainless steel core from The Bangle Guy and he was very nice to work with. I was intially going to sell it, but ended up donating it with some other turned items to a friend’s benefit as she is 31 and is fighting an uphill battle with Aplastic Anemia. After her bone marrow transplant, her donor cells are attacking her body and is really amounting to some high medical bills. We were able to bring in over $22,000 for her.

It’s nice to make some money doing what you love, but it feels better to give for a great cause. Thank you for looking. -Craig
