Step 1: Make the Stencle

First print out the robot picture, cut it out and place it on the metal piece and trace it with a permanent marker, I made the robot into a sticker and left it on there for now but you can just trace it.

Step 3: Make it Purdy

Once its cut out clamp it to the counter and file the edges to make it look better. Then I sanded the top to make it smooth and look better.

Step 4: Engrave Details

Once the edges are file down i put the picture of the robot back on and used a x-acto knife to scrape the details in.

Step 5: Finishing Up


now drill the hole in the top corner of his head, and attach a necklace jump ring and string through. And You're done! Ask if you have any questions regarding the build.

Enjoy!

the "necklace thingy" is called a jump ring which can then be threaded onto leather cord or "thong"/"thonging" to use its proper name :)

great job!
Great necklace..
I think if you acid etch the details, it would look a lot better then using a x-acto knife.
Keep up the great work, though..
