Engraving with the Cricut—Necklace on Metal
I have been known to do some really crazy things with my Cricut. I love to try materials that you wouldn’t think would work…..well, here we go again, this one definitely worked!

As I was walking around my local Joann’s finding fun things I thought would work with the Engraving Tip I stumbled upon a pair of earrings…Yes Earrings in the Jewelry Department. Stay with me here….

The earrings were cheap! And….I got two, who would have guessed, LOL! I took off the “earring” hardware at the top of the circle. I then added some Scor-tape to the back of the earring to help hold it on the Cricut mat.

The image I chose is on one of the Creative Memories cartridges. It has a circle form to it. I used the Center Point feature on my Cricut. I moved the Blade Housing (aka—Engraving Tip) to the center of my earring and made my design 1½”. It fit perfectly!!

When you are done, you just have to wipe away the “dust” the engraving leaves. When I was done, I added some Silver Stickles to the center of the design.

I would say I can’t wait to wear this, but someone already took it from me as soon as it was done—actually the Stickles weren’t even dry yet!!!  (Amy here: That would be Maria's beautiful daugther!!!  Lucky Maria had 2 of the metal accents so she can make herself one to hehe!)
You have outdone yourself Maria!  Love this, and so does my daughter, which means I may be going to Joanns soon as well hehe!
