How did it take me so long to cut earrings? Medium walnut plywood proofgrade.
I bought a few files from etsy to try, and printed them as-is. They are for cutting the fake leather earrings on a plotter and so could use a few modifications (like the point on the teardrop should be rounded for the jump ring to hang nicely through the thicker material). Can’t wait to make some with my own designs.
Those are great, thanks for sharing!
Right!? I never considered jewelry making in my crafting (LONG time craft nut, before the GF). But now… It’s fairly easy to create amazing pieces… Looking forward to creating many necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.
YOU are certainly off to a great start!
One fun thing I have found with earrings is exceptional versatility with resources.
Once the design is functional, you can push it onto acrylic, leather, or wood.
Some with etch/score highlights may require a little more tweak, but even that is not always necessary.
Jewelry is what got me excited initially about two color acrylic. It can really make a set of earrings pop.
Ooooo, nice in the walnut!
Great work. Are these using PG hardwood walnut or the PG walnut plywood? I’ve made pendants with regular hardwood but found they snapped really easily along the grain. I’m assuming the PG plywood, which is just a veneer on PG draftboard is much more robust across all dimensions.
They are the plywood, I learned my lesson early on about hardwood
Thank you! Now I feel absolved.
