Ok this one is just a lasercut pendant but with a spot to add the oval cabachon

I really like this one Jackie. Very interesting design. Do you wire wrap as well? I assume you do based on the inset in the black acrylic bracelet in your other thread.

Jackie - cut this out! If my wife sees your last two posts I will be out business or maybe into the jewelery business. :)

Actually, great ideas, I have been encouraged to play with earring designs and my daughter is bugging me for an earring holder. Guess that is what midnight to 7 am is for.

Thanks for sharing, it is amazing to see people's creativity.

Yet another! Beautiful. I know my wife would have me trying to copy you.

Thanks everyone for the compliments, and it really is easier than it looks to bend the bracelets you should try it.

Belinda,
I have tried some wire wrapping but didn't stick with it. It was fun but a little too tedious for me. The piece I put into the cuff came from michaels.

Jackie,

That pendant is beautiful. What material did you use for it?

Colleen,
Hi I used 1/8" wood. I actually forgot what kind, it was a scrap piece I had laying around (I think it was balsa ply). I'll have to do some in mahogany :)

Thanks Jackie! You just gave me a great idea for a Christmas present. I've got some onyx that would look fabulous in tha setting like that. Guess I know what I'm doing tonight!

Hi Jackie,
great work , looks fantastic. I was wondering where did you get the vector Celtic designs? I have some myself but they are not vector format. is it hard to transform a bit map to vector for cutting those very intricate patterns?

Thanks
Tom

Hi Tom,
Thanks. I got the vector celic designs posted on this forum, but I modified them. They were vector. If I can find the post I'll put the link here.

To Modify them you'll need to go to arrange menu and break curve apart (in corel).

Here is one thread that I posted with some of the designs I got here on the creek that I had already converted for cut outs. These can be modified for jewelry.
