A Horse, of Course

I made this lovely necklace for my lovely friend D quite a while ago, but I had it back to adjust the chain length for her, and remembered I'd never taken a picture. This is the third necklace that I've made from recycling laminate samples from work. I epoxy 2 back to back, and hand cut the shapes with a jeweler's saw and smooth with needle files. The material is great, soft and easy to cut, but vibrant and durable. I'm not sure if these are going to make it into my etsy shop - they're labor intensive, and I'd have to charge a bit more for my time. But they are one-of-a-kind hand cut, so maybe I'll try one or two in the shop. If I could just ditch my day job.....

Pin It!
