Graphite Pencil and Eraser Bracelet is an unusual wood bracelet featuring #2 Pencils with white erasers. The erasers and a section of a #2 pencils is cast into a resin block. This block goes to a wood lathe to become this unique bracelet and bangle. Previously, I would make this style bangle with color pencils. These have become my signature pieces and are available in my store. This is a transition to another common material, the ubiquitous lead pencil for making jewelry.
This Bracelet features a cross-section of graphite pencils and erasers. I fabricate the pencil sections from an epoxy resin block. The white erasers with the silver metal barrels that hold the erasers. Together with the black lead pencil color offers a wonderful contrast in colors. A clear protective resin coating highlights and protects this bangle. The size of this bracelet is approximately 2 1/2 inch diameter on the inside and 3 1/2 inches outside dimension.
This is a great conversation piece and will get attention when worn with any outfit. Your friends will not be able to identify the pencil components of the bracelet and will respond with a WOW when you tell them they are pencils.
This bracelet will make an exceptional Artist Gift and Teacher Gift. How about a Birthday Gift for that special person in your life? You can find these items in my store on this site.

I design and produce all items in my studio in Montvale, New Jersey, USA. I began to make wood jewelry in 2010. Beginning with wood pendants I then transitioned to other jewelry items. This bangle is an outgrowth of that process experimenting with a new material.
