Loving Laser Cut Jewelry

One of my favorite types of jewelry is acrylic (or plastic) laser cut. It has "carved" a niche of its own in the jewelry world. It seemed like an involved process as I was researching the manufacturing of it. Firstly, you need a laser cutting machine that will be hooked up to your computer with specific software. You also need sheets of acrylic. A graphic editing program is also necessary to draw the desired design. The sheet of acrylic is loaded into the machine and the design is then printed to it. Sounds complicated, doesn't it? Well, I don't know if I'd ever be able to learn, but I sure do love and purchase laser cut jewelry items. Mostly, I get them on etsy. Here are some particular ones I fancy:
So if you're looking for something a little more funky and edgy than traditional jewels, try on a laser cut piece. You might get addicted!
