Welcome to Bangle Bowl 2014

Bangle Bowl 2014 Winners

First off, we want to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Bangle Bowl contest. We really couldn’t have hoped for a better turnout or selection of absolutely stunning work!
Also, with over 500 votes logged, we definitely want to thank all the folks who came out and voted in the contest. Last but not least, a huge thank you to all the sponsors of the contest who have donated prizes for the winners, and especially Marc Spagnuolo for letting us host this fun event on The Wood Whisperer website.
