I wanted to share a few of my (recent) favorite laser-cut pieces! For anyone interested in laser cut jewelry, ponoko.com is a great place to start if you are not able to purchase or rent a machine. If you do want to find a distributor in your area, epiloglaser.com is the place to find out information needed before purchasing. Smiley

I made a few two-part brooches from acrylic last month, but this is my favorite, I think!

Carpe Noctem:



I don't have a photograph of it being worn as a brooch, but I do have the necklace version photographed on someone:



And this is the Carpe Diem brooch being worn (sorry for the poor quality photo):



I also just finished playing around with gold mirrored acrylic and made a beetle necklace (my absolute favorite!):



And a whimsical sparrows and flowers necklace:



Thank you for having a look! I hope you all had a great weekend!

I love the idea of a two-part brooch! Now, why did I never think of that before... [grin]

Your work is fabulous.
