Wow. The last time that I wrote about my laser-cutting adventures (eight months ago), I had just come up with a filigree butterfly design and was pleased with the way it turned out.

Since then I’ve been really busy, and have been doing some work for Maria Allen, who makes really clever use of the way that the laser can personalise gifts to make them unique.

Recently though I’ve had chance to experiment with my butterflies again, and have now extended the range. For example, here is a set of wooden butterfly pendants:

But for people who prefer the filigree version, I still make that one!:

But my current favourites are the little phone charms (with a hole in the top corner of one wing). The smaller one is 1cm wide, and the larger one is 1.5cm wide:

I think I might try to make some card-toppers one day, using the same design…
