We love playing with different materials on our laser cutter, and we really wanted to show that you can create a natural beauty with a CNC laser cutter that is so precise.
For something so easily produced it has a lovely hand crafted feel and everything we used was recycled from old clothes that we tea stained to give a soft look.
You can create this both with a laser cutter or by hand if you don't have access to one using scissors and buttons.
Changing the material and colours drasticly changes how the necklace feels and what kind of statement you want to make.
It takes about 1 hour to cut and make this necklace so why not give it a go

Step 1: The Concept of the Flower Necklace
In the initial design concept we envisaged a multi layered statement necklace that was both perfect and natural.
We used AutoCAD 2011 to create our flowers and shape our base layer.
We were able to use AutoCAD not only for the perfection of the design but also able to use it to directly output the cut parts directly to the laser.
We love AutoCAD due to its easy nature to create complex repeated parts that always come out just how we have drawn them.
We have included the AutoCAD 2011 file as well as a Corel Draw file that you can use to make your own (although not for financial gain or for profit please)
