Fellow Forgers, I could use your help getting an idea to gel. A friend of mine is an EMT and used one of his gadgets to record and print out my kids’ heartbeats. I’d like to turn them into jewelry for my wife on Mothers Day. Can’t quite picture how I want it to look, and hoping some of you might have a project to share for inspiration!
Maybe a bracelet - etched wood slats with elastic string somehow? I considered a necklase but I can’t see how that would look at all attractive…
I really like the design in that picture but I was worried that being so thin it wouldn’t be very durable out of wood, and I’m not a big fan of acrylics for jewelry. Still, maybe something to try. Thanks!
Awsome, work, @cynd11! I was thinking something really similar to this, but maybe with a bar that can go on a chain or be curved into a bracelet like this or this? Could also use cermark (or search the forums for other marking techniques).
Narrowing it in! Bracelets on elastic beading cord. Tried circular tiles with one string, then with two, but it looked so clunky. Finally went with one oval tile. Now to get some nice wood for the final cut.
