Custom Daisy Necklace

This week in the studio I finished this custom made daisy necklace – pretty and bright for a summer wedding. Each flower is made of laser cut birch that has been hand painted, and the center of each flower is engraved with my favorite part of a daisy – the spiral pattern of florets (the same pattern can be found in sunflowers). Nature is amazing, and these are little tokens to celebrate it.

Come see us at the Keady Market!

Twisted Spiral booth at the Keady Market – if the weather is good on Tuesdays, I will be continuing to sell wood jewelry and clocks, cork coasters, and cut paper greeting cards. Here’s hoping for some sunshine…. Come say hello!

Cabinet Door Grills

These door panels were made as part of a walnut liquor cabinet I built as my final project in school. I designed them and cut them out of 1/8″ hardboard. They were sprayed matte black then installed in the doors with a piece of textured amber glass. I was very happy with the matte finish – they look like metal.

Here are the finished panels before installation:

This is what they looked like with the stained glass:

And a process shot – here’s what the wood (hardboard) panel looked like just out of the laser.
