Further Laser Cutting Adventures

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:

ImageThey are chunkier and more hard-wearing than the filigree version, but still have the design on both sides.

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…

Yay – I made a new pendant! Red and yellow flower. Very bright – I don’t think I’d have the guts to wear it though!

21 days to go until the polymer clay cruise – and here is the latest necklace in my “100 Days” challenge

Back home, but still don’t have time to make new beads because I am now trying to finish the final, final writeup of the project for my Master’s Degree. So here’s another bead I made earlier (erm, about two months earlier?) but it is now hanging from a piece of chain:

As usual though, I’m still glad I have finally begun to start turning my giant stash of beads into something wearable:

This is my last night in Ireland, but I haven’t got the means to make any polymer clay shamrocks. All I’ve got are the beads I brought with me:
