- The key to creating a flame-polished edge on acrylic is to have a moderately strong down draft from the exhaust's vacuum. To prevent the material to move out of position, engraving table tape is an important tool to have.

Apply the engraving table tape to the back side of the acrylic sheet. Then, carefully position the sheet on the acrylic cutting grid table in your laser. The engraving tape will stick to the table, preventing the material from shifting when being cut.
To maximize the exhaust's suction force on the acrylic sheet, cover the remaining work area with material (e.g., paper sheets).

To complete your first necklace, fix two jump rings to the necklace chain using the needle nose pliers. Finally, use the needle nose pliers to insert the jump rings into the pendant's eyelets. If the pendant has a single eyelet, use one jump ring.
Repeat this process for any additional necklaces or bracelets you wish to make.
