Pendant Necklace

Mix laser cutting, wood and thread to create a decorative pendant necklace.

Project Files


  • Plywood (I used 2.5mm Eucalypt Plywood but any material/thickness will work)
  • Cotton Thread
  • Ribbon, shoelace or other thread for the material that will go around your neck or to hang it up for decoration

Other Items Needed:

  • Tweezers
  • Oil/Finishes + Brush (Optional, I used 2 coats of Tung oil)
  • Glue (Optional, used for the gift box)

The Build

1: Follow the tutorial on instructables to design your own pendant or load the project file into LightBurn.

2: Modify the settings for the material and thickness you are using.

3: Cut the pendant out and carefully pop out any pieces that are stuck with tweezers.

4: Add a finish to the wood if you like to make it stand out.

5: Thread the cotton in any pattern you like, a Pearle pattern is used here. (Follow instructibles on details of how to replicate the threading shown below)

6: (Optional) Cut the gift box for the pendant and glue it together.
