so, i've been looking for ways to cut acrylic into pendants (as well as other materials, such as wood).  i don't want to use shrinky dinks; i'm looking into using acrylic.  is there any way i can cut it with a dremel? (using a blade, of course Cheesy)  Or, do i have to get a jeweler's saw?  any help is greatly appreciated Smiley  thanks!

I find that my dremel is too fast and ends up melting the acrylic. I use my jeweler's saw for plastics. I find that I have greater control over the jeweler's saw than the dremel. It still gets gummed up but at least the plastic isn't melting everywhere!
