<p>Wow! This jewelry is so cool, the options are just endless here with these designs. Absolutely love it. But how did you get a laser cutter machine? Is this the same as a 3D printer, like these <a href="http://www.monomachines.com/shop/office-supplies/3-d-printers.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.monomachines.com/shop/office-supplies/3...</a> or is this completely different. These printers seem so cool to make little jewelry pieces though.</p><p>Thanks for the awesome instructable. I've got to try this!</p>
Hey! I'm glad you enjoyed it, I don't have a laser machine. You should be a able to find a laser cutting/engraving service around you (usually places that offer printing services would have one). It's not the same as a 3D printer.
<p>ohh ok, big difference! Thanks for clarifying that. A service would be super helpful. Thanks again!</p>

You might be able to do these in wood with a scroll saw.&nbsp;&nbsp; You could also try the oven friendly polymer clays
Those are really great designs<br />
