I first designed these TOAD pendants to promote our friend's art car while finishing college in 2010. Back then, the laser cutter I had access to was not great. Out of the hundreds of pendants I cut, only a few were cut all the way through. The rest had to be hand-cut, sanded, and some just tossed because they couldn't be fixed up.
So I was INCREDIBLY excited to get on the lasers at TechShop and cut out a new batch in just two laser sessions. All of the pendants cut perfectly (except the first two, before the lens was cleaned) and they look great. I just put these in the mail to our friends back on the East Coast, who are still bringing the TOAD art car to events like the NYC Pride Parade, Dance Parade, Figment NYC and the Mermaid Parade. Next Summer, I hope to be back in NYC dancing on the TOAD art car wearing these pendants :)
