Step 1: Lasercut Shape

I used the Trotec Speedy 300 x2 laser cutting machine in a Fablab in Montreal, with a 3mm acrylic sheet. I used this material because it is strong and light, but you use cold wood if you prefer!

Here are the parameters used for cutting, but please make your own test with your lasercut machine and materials.

- v : 80
- p : 100
- f : 1000

Step 2: Add Earing Parts

Personnaly I created my own earing parts with a silver wire, but you could easly buy some in creative/DIY store for cheap. I recommand to use silver for higienic purpose.

Step 3: Box for Gift

I also bought small black box and engrave it with a logo I created,
it is a cheap way of personalize more and it is better for a gift :)

    Have you tried mirrored surfaces to laser cut and engrave? They come out really cool!

    Thanks :)
    The material was a little reflective, so for the cutting I did removed the protective film.
    I just did some cutting and no engraving.

    I cut the shapes with a laser then used a silver wire, folded and cut with pliers to create the metal part for the earrings! For the necklace I just bought a chain and silver rings.
