The mirrored acrylic is beautiful. It looks so much different than the black. I love all of the stuff you make.

Beautiful! I love the Lady Ought. Just wondering -- when you wear it, do you feel all the little points against your skin, or does the necklace lie against your skin in such a way that the little points aren't an issue? I'm wondering if the necklace is "comfortable" to wear. It looks gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

I have one of her necklaces and it's very comfortable. It's incredibly light. Whenever I wear it I keep touching it to make sure it's still there nad then I get fingerprints on it.

The close-up photo of the Lola necklace in mirror is breathtaking. 

Amazing work and designs on all of these.

Thanks so much for the lovely comments! I really appreciate the feedback on both colors! I love finding excuses to use the mirrored acrylic because it catches the light so beautifully. Smiley But then... the black is so classic and elegant. I'm usually torn between them.

My new pieces were crafted with a combination of lasers and rotary tools. If anyone is interested in learning to work acrylic with a scroll saw, I have found some great resources online and I'll be glad to see if I can find my bookmarks again.  Smiley If you are already experienced with a scroll, working acrylic is much like working wood. Only it melts sometimes. And then you are sad  Sad ... until you realize you can cover the acrylic pre-attached masking with even more masking tape! And the melting is greatly reduced if not completely eliminated! However, you cannot do this with mirrored acrylic. The tape will rip off your pretty mirrored backing. Colored acrylic has masking paper on both sides, where mirrored does not.

Thanks again for all the kind words and have a super day!

Oh my, I would love to do something like that but I have no clue how to do that .-. and I guess it needs many supplies ( expensive ? ) and maybe it is hard to do ? Plus I'm not even sure I could find all supplies here o-o unfair world u_u
