This week has been a week of experimentation. I have been playing around with several designs (one is shown below). I was able to fixed the misalignment problems by adjusting the designs slightly to make sure that they turn properly. The more I play around with the gears the more desire I have to create a collection of mechanical jewelry. At the moment, I have been cutting out the designs out of cardboard so that I do not waste the acrylic material. When I made my designs on the computer, I felt comfortable with their size, but as I have begun to test and cut them. The design shown below is about 2.5 inches across. This will be a perfect size for a bracelet, but I am thinking I will need to increase the gear sizes in my necklace design. However, these gear sizes will be perfect for earring. I am continuing to work on designs and ways to make them more unique then clear acrylic.
