    You just surprised me Dawn!
    I've never thought or heard items like those would exist, and I see very clearly their utility and why they sell well.

    Moreover when they are as beautiful as those.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Dawn those are beauties. Very well done. I like turning buckeye pens and toothpick holders.

    Uhhhhhmmmmm, ummmmmm, when I grew up those weren't called "bracelet helpers"!!!!!!!!!
    When I have a student want to turn one, I actually have a parent know so I haven't contributed to the delinquency of a minor.
    Oh, those are very nice by the way!!

    The ones back in our day had feathers or beads on 'em. And we didn't use them for bracelets, either.

    They both look very nice, Dawn. I'd say the lacewood one is my favorite, but they're both well done.

    Nice work, dawn.

    I can see how it can be used for the bracelets, but I am totally confused by the comments from Jonathan and Vaughn.

    I made a few of those... always got strange looks from people when they picked them up... may have been my clientele??

    I always told them "I made them as bracelet helpers, that my story and I'm sticking to it... your usage may vary."

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
