Not what you expected. I mean positive and negative. how many times have you seen art laying in the bed of the laser when you pull your cut?
For the first time, I printed a design from the catalog because it caught my eye. The remnants inspired me.
Catalog design is on the left. I might even prefer the cut-outs. The geometry says waves, and the color (proofgrade florescent blue acrylic) reminds me of the Caribbean in the shallows.
She says “It will catch your hair…” of course she’s right, but beauty suffers.
Taking what would be waste and doing a negative may yield surprising results you never saw coming.
Yes, I don’t do much jewelry work anymore but the fully equipped bench comes in very handy often. It was a little tricky because of the small radius of the jump ring, the holes had to be angled upward on each side to accommodate it.
@cynd11 thank you, discovery like that are serendipitous!
… it would come clear as soon as you put it together, the pieces didn’t hang at the correct angle. It was either that or go with a much larger ring, and visualizing that didn’t do a thing for the aesthetic of the design, at least in my mind’s eye.
