Mulberry Bangle

This is actually the first bracelet I made.*

I've cut up a lot of mulberry branches over the years but I haven't stripped the bark off of any branch this thick. Turns out it has a really interesting grain that I had not seen before. And the mustardy center contrasts well with the lighter outside of the hoop.

I kept this one all natural. And I'll give it a sealing coat of wax to protect it from wear and discoloration.


*Yeah, I see how that's confusing given that the previous post is titled "First Bracelet." But I'm giving myself the luxury of two firsts. And what a luxury! I'm just swimming in a two-firsts pool of wine.
