For this week’s assignment, due to some lack in planning, I had to troubleshoot with some materials I had available. I had a 3x24” sheet of Cherry Basswood leftover from earlier in the semester and found some metal earring hooks or as they are called in the box, “ear wires” - so I decided to make earrings.

Being quite stressed out over finals, I wanted to make something mindlessly fun so I drew some breakfast characters on Illustrator and used the laser cutter to cut them. During our laser cutter assignment I didn’t have a chance to etch/engrave so I was excited to try it out.
