(Somehow all of my text disappeared so I will try to rewrite it.)

When I was first told how easy it was to laser cut something, I decided to start with what I love best: celtic knots.  I made two versions and I've provided them both in the attached document.

I made this at Techshop in SF!

Supplies:
  1. Material (I used both acrylic and wood)
  2. Jump Ring
  3. Cord
  4. Needle Nose Pliers

I made this design with just circles.  It was pretty easy.  All you have to do is line everything up exactly right ;)

Once you are ready, make sure you define your etch lines and your cut lines.  I etched my lines at 2 points.  Also, make sure you add in a hole to attach it to a necklace.  My final pendant was about 1.5 inches wide from bottom tip to bottom tip.  When I frist did this, I went overboard and it was about 3 inches wide and made of wood.  Though I will probably wear it sometime, I didn't think any one else would so I redid it with black acrylic.  I added in a photo of the wood version so you can see how it will turn out and also, I did both versions in wood.

Assembling the necklace:
  1. Take your jump ring and attach it to the hole at the top of your pendant.
  2. Take your cord and string it through the jump ring.
  3. Tie a nice double knot leaving enough room so you can slip it over your head.
  4. Wear and be happy with your awesome celtic knot!
What program did you use to draw the design?
<p>I used Adobe Illustrator. </p>
