 Marvelous wood bracelets! 
Most of these bracelets are made of American or Canadian (Code A) turned wood measuring approximately 2-3/4" across
 (inside diameter) and 1-1/4" width of band.  (This is a great size for people like me who always have difficulty finding things large enough to accommodate "big boned" people.  I'm sure there are tons of you out there who know exactly of which I speak.  Another one of Life's Little Frustrations.)  The inside of these sometimes have a rough surface--this is simply "the nature of the wood."   These particular wood turnings are becoming hard to find.  Consequently, I've gone to using nicely made wood blanks
for small- to fine-boned people.
Band width = 1-1/4"
ID = 2-3/4"
Band width = 1 "
ID = 2-5/8"
To simplify this, use this table to check against code given in individual bracelet's description.  (Any "odd" bracelets will be properly described in their descriptive paragraph.)      Allow a shipping weight of 2 oz. per bracelet.

Here are the current offerings.  There's a bit of something for everyone.  You really ought to check 'em all out, but for those of you in a "hurry" (for whatever unimaginable reason when presumably you surfed here for a reason!), I've added a few quick links to some by subject.  (If you just check the links, you'll miss some....)

Original design one of a kind handpainted whimiscal wood bracelet - Cows in propellor hats.  ©Austin Originals.  All rights reserved. 
Three views of handpainted bracelet featuring a bunch of cows standing around in their propeller hats, waiting for the party to begin (?).  One of a kind.     Code I.

"Holsteins in Propeller Hats #1"

 For the Appy lover:  I wanted this to have sort of an "old-time" look to it and not a "slick" feel, either.  Somewhat stylized horses are shown galloping in a desert like area with yellow and purple sages.  I speckled the entire background and then added the characteristic Appy spots.  Around and over this I applied a cobalt sky.  So the whole things has sort of a  gritty feel (makes you want to pick the sand out of your teeth!).

One of a kind original design handpainted wood bracelet - Pastel rabbits.  ©Austin Orignals.  All rights reserved.*Due to the difficulty of accurately presenting these particular colors on the web, please note that the rabbits on this bracelet are actually a very pale tannish brown. (The baby rabbit, 3rd from left in top view is  closest to actual rabbits' colorings.)
Pastel Rabbits bracelet - 3 views of same bracelet.  Handpainted on wood turning imported from India,   A bunch of wild rabbits happily grazing in a grassy area, scattered with luscious dandelions.  The cerulean blue sky has just a few wispy clouds.  You can see their whiskers---each rabbit carefully detailed in this respect with fine quill pen.  Entire bracelet is very high key and just has a pleasant, soothing feel to it.  High gloss finish.  Code I

Rabbits bracelet #2.  Handpainted by artist, Janice Austin, on 1(Composite - all views of same bracelet)
I wanted this bracelet to have   somewhat of an Oriental feel to it, so I added the gnarled Spring twigs just coming into blossom to go with the simplified hares, purposely painted so that each brushstroke shows.  Then I added some fine quill pen detailing here and there, plus some spring dandelions and violets in the grasses.  Wood is a very pleasant mellow color, a bit lighter in some areas. Web color is fairly accurate--depending also, of course, on your own browser's color settings.   CODE I
"Rabbits bracelet #2"             $32.50 + S/H
Rabbits bracelet # 3.  Shown are 4 views of handpainted bracelet by artist, Janice Austin.  Done in acrylics on natural wood turning imported from India.  2-5/8
This bracelet is very similar to the one shown above, except that the wood itself is slightly lighter in tone.  I've also added red tulips and some tiny pink blossoms just beginning on the flowering shrubs.  There are a few blue butterflies and some dandelions randomly here and there, too.  Grass color is a muted green. CODE I
"Rabbits bracelet #3"
$32.50 + S/H
Handpainted one of a kind wood bracelet-Bumblebees. Done on bicolor wood turning, imported. ©Austin Originals 2003.  All rights reserved. The wood turning for this bracelet was imported from India.  I don't know what kind of wood it is, but it is quite lightweight, fine grained and absolutely beautiful!  The shape of the turning is unique--you can see that the whole thing is angled, and then there is further angulation that gives it a somewhat carved look.  I've painted 12 bumblebees in great detail here, one each on a clover blossom on the wider dark wood "inserts" on either side.  High gloss finish.  Bracelet ID is only 2.5"    Width of decorated area = 5/8"-1".  One-of-a-kind and definitely a work of art!
Order as Bracelet:    "Bumblebees & Clover" $38.50
Seven Butterflies bracelet.  Shown below are top and bottom views of a rather unusual bracelet turning---it's shaped somewhat like a flying saucer.  Look closely and you'll note that the "rim" kind of fades out after it gets partially around.  I'm not a wood worker in that respect, so I don't know if that was done purposefully or not.   The shape seemed perfect for flying butterflies!  I've added just a hint of iridescence for realism after finishing the detail of their wings.  Gloss finish.  Very pleasant and lightweight to wear! Code I.  Measures 3-3/4" across.     Shipping wt = 2 oz. Click on either image to see an enlargement.

3 views of Carved African veldt animal theme wood bracelet handpainted in faux jewels with Cheetah paintings.  One of a kind.   ©Austin Originals.  All rights reserved.This is really nice, fine grained wood (unknown species) wood turning imported from India.  It came with the burnt markings--which just cried out to be painted in something African.  For this one, cheetahs immediately came to mind.  I made three different detailed paintings on the raised diamond areas, triple glazed to approximate jewels.  I picked an hot African midday color blue for ends and inside. The bracelet is quite heavy.  Entire bracelet is about 3-3/4” across, 2-1/2” inside diameter, width = 1”.  I really like it!  (African animals and scenes are one of my favorite themes.)   High gloss over all.

“Cheetahs”  $45
