I made this bam bam bangle (follow the link for details of the tutorial and my first attempt at a bam bam bracelet) a little larger than the others and therefore it slips over my wrist without needing to be in 2 parts. I covered the join with a little extruded string. I made another curved tube bead and have strung it on a simple cord. After sanding I buffed them with my home made muslin buffing wheel on the Dremel -they are beautifully shiny now!
I am Cara Jane Hayman aka Surfingcat. I live in Bristol with my lovely husband and 2 (mainly) lovely children who are 5 and nearly 7 years old. They keep me busy and I teach in a local school 1 day a week but when I have a moment what I love to do is make things (oh and surf the internet). The surfingcat thing came about in the good old days when I used to do some real surfing - the wet kind!
