1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fairytale Cuff on: October 11, 2010 01:04:10 PM
I played around with bracelet making this weekend and finished this cuff I've been planning in my head for a while.  Smiley

The cuff is stainless steel polished to a mirrored finish. The engraved text reads:

"And though the shadow of a sigh
May tremble through the story,
It shall not touch with breath of bale,
The pleasance of our fairy-tale."

It is a portion of the 'Through the Looking Glass' epigraph.  Smiley I made a few other ID style bracelets too but I haven't had a chance to polish and photograph them yet. This was my favorite.  Grin

I just finished polishing and brush finishing this piece today and wanted to share some photos.  Smiley It's laser cut from stainless steel. I've been wanting to make a three finger ring that doesn't hinder movement. After several failed attempts I decided to make a ring that sits across three fingers, but that only has one finger opening instead. I named it Ostentatious. Cheesy It's super comfortable!

Thanks for checking it out! Have a great weekend!

I started designing the cake bangle for my mother (I'm not one to wear bracelets very often), but after finishing hers I wanted one for myself and went with a Wonderland theme. I've been wearing mine with this enormous swarovski crystal encrusted rabbit head ring I ordered online. Smiley The bangles are 2mm thick, laser cut from steel, and cleaned up and brushed in a soft matte finish. They're probably not the most practical bangles I've ever made, but they are extremely durable and very fun to wear. I'd love to know what you think!

How cute! The little clay charms are excellent! Smiley

I love it! I also think it's super cool that you made the base from a napkin ring - great job!  Smiley

I just finished up this project today so I would have some bunnies to give as Easter gifts.  Smiley They are laser cut from stainless steel and brush finished, and I used titanium posts attached with adhesive.

My favorites are the skull studs, but the bunnies and fleur-de-lis come in tied for second. Next on my list is some wee octopuses and maybe some kind of bird.  Smiley

I sooooooooooooo  Grin LOVE  Grin this..

but I have to ask... Huh
What machine is it that you used??? Wink
You posted "LASER CUT"
(I've always cut out by hand, tedious work)
*rewarding, but still tedious*
I have GOT TO KNOW how it was cut out by laser?
P~L~L~L~L~L~E~A~S~S~S~S~S~S~S~S~S~S~S~E!!!!!!!! Undecided Kiss

That is soooooooooooo awesome!

Thank you! Smiley If you work with steel I would love to talk to you about your blades/files. The tools I have for silver can't take the abuse very long before replacement and after a piece comes off the bed it requires a lot of cleaning and detailing so I have many suffering tools. Smiley

Epilog is a great place to request information about laser cutting systems and if you are interested in cutting acrylic I would definitely recommend starting there. They have a mini for (I think) 10,000 and sometimes you can get a used deal for 7-8K. When I was interested in the mini I requested their free brochures which I think they still offer. Smiley

Please feel free to PM me for more information about laser cutting steel.  Smiley

I made this last weekend on a whim - I found some super sparkly Swarovski crystals online and wanted to incorporate them into a silhouette design somehow. The whole piece was cut and finished with a little spot added to the design so that I could glue the crystal and make it look like the bird has snatched it from some treasure. The silhouette is laser cut and I've cleaned up the steel so it has really clean detailed edges and a satiny brushed finish. I tried to get a better shot of the crystal's sparkle in the last photograph. They are so pretty when the light hits them!  Smiley
