Hello Lovelies!
I love kitties, and I find that kitty items tend to be more popular amongst my customers.  So I went a little crazy and made four new laser cut pendant designs, involving kitties and sweets!

These were a little more complex then the last laser cut pendants I made, since they had a lot more pieces to cut  out and assemble, adding all the swarovski crystal details is also time consuming, but well worth it!  I'm really glad with how they turned out!

First up is a super happy kitty fancy pendant!  I had the laser engrave a cute heart pattern on the pink part.  I thought it looked really cool.  The edges of the pendant are all blinged out with Swarovski crystals.


Next is a Kitty holding a cupcake with swarovski crystal sprinkles!  Again I used engraving on the cupcake cup to make the awesome heart details.


Now kitty is on top of the cupcake! 


Last but not least, here's a tiny kitty on a strawberry.  My boyfriend calls this kitty 'spider kitty' since she's so small in comparison to the strawberry lol.  I used big 7mm swarovski crystals for the strawberry details.


I used onyx cabochons for the eyes and swarovski crystal for cheek details.  Thanks for looking guys. And as always, I'm interested in hearing what you think of them. ♥

These are so cute! I always love your stuff  Cheesy

I had a question, just out of curiosity (although feel free to not answer if it's like a trade secret!). But, how do you make the different bits? I mean, I love the look and "cleanliness" of laser cut pendants, but do you actually use the laser yourself or do you get the parts done somewhere else and then assemble? I can't help it, I like to know how things are done  Wink Thank you!

lol you guys make me smile!  thanks guys ^_^

Mad_Scientist:  I make a layout for each sheet/color of acrylic I use, and layout each little bit I need.  Since I don't have a laser cutter I just send my layouts to people who do have one, and they run them through their laser.  i hope to have my own though... one day... hehe.

Thank you for explaining!  Cheesy I had seen such websites, and I always wondered...

A home laser would be super cool! I think I want one just 'cos, although I have a feeling a lot of things would end up in pieces at home  Grin
