French Revolution Guillotine Earrings

Guillotine Earrings



My daughter sews and makes historical clothing recreations from 1500-1700s. She often shows me items that inspire her as she surfs the internet. Recently she shared a pair of earrings from the French Revolution that illustrate the beheading of King Louis XVI.

I thought, I could make a small guillotine on my laser cutter. So I make her a pair inspired from the photo she shared with me. I cut these from 1/8 inch thick Glowforge proof grade maple plywood.

Beheading of King Louis XVI

Luckily she has a small plastic box full of 1 million little jump rings and a pack of elegant handmade sterling ear hooks that she got on Amazon to put it all together.

Fun stuff. I’m not sure if anyone else would want this project, but I have put the SVG file on Etsy for instant download. This would look nifty done in clear colored acrylic, don’t you think? Share your photos in your Etsy review so I can see what you come up with.
