These earrings are a bit of a challenge to cut but they should sell for a decent price. They are cut from 1/8" thick hardwood. Each of the patterns are about one inch in diameter. All the entry holes can be drilled with a 1/16" drill bit. I used a #1 Ultra Reverse blade to cut this set.
When you are cutting very thin stock like this slow your saw down to help keep control. You can also stack cut these which can make control easier. Learning to use the back and side of the blade to stop your cut will make these easier to cut. It can be easy to over cut the pattern when making a turn in this stock.
This is another example where the outside cut is a circle and needs to be cut accurately. Flaws on the circle will make the earrings look sloppy and hard to sell. Take your time.
I will soon start taking orders for my yearly Custom Name Christmas Ornaments. I like to design new ornaments every year. I have had several requests to bring back some of the patterns from previous years. I'm still trying to figure out if I can manage that. It gets difficult to manage more than a few because of the process I use for orders. I'm working on it. I will be doing at least one of the layered Christmas ornaments again this year with custom name. They were very popular last year and I get request for those often.
