Starting a Handmade Business
Hi Seamaster,Yes, I am a makerspace teacher. This project is the result of a program for passion-based learning that students in grades 6-8 may apply. It is an extracurricular undertaking as most of the work is done outside of school (home, before school and after school, some weekends). Inspired by some of my projects, this student applied to learn about how the laser cutter might be used to make jewelry. Students keep portfolios (Google Sites) to document their projects and learning. She is now my laser cutting expert!Other work in the space is integrated into classroom projects.
Yes, they are the identical design to the 3D printed earrings in my other Instructable, but designed and fabricated in two very different ways. Laser Cutting is much, much faster and there are more color/style options with acrylic. 3D printing is more accessible to users, but far fewer colors exist. Something notable is that the same Tinkercad design for these earrings can be downloaded for use to either a 3D printer (.stl) OR a laser cutter (.svg).
