Not everyone has a laser cutter, but you can find great services online to help you out.www.cutyourway.com is a great site that gives free samples up to 1"x3"
Just send your design and they make it and mail it to you in about a week.
They have lots of cool materials like pearly acrylic and exotic woods like ebony and cocobolo.
Also, if you don't have illustrator, try www.inkscape.org
it's free and easy to use. There are tons of tutorials online to help you get started!

You might be able to do these in wood with a scroll saw.   You could also try the oven friendly polymer clays
