1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrinky Dink Rings + Matching Pendants : ) *several pics* on: March 20, 2007 12:46:52 PM
The nice response I got to some Shrinky Dink pendants I posted inspired me to make some Shrinky Dink rings to match.  A couple of these pendants were in an earlier post, but all of the rings are new. 

The weather is still cloudy here, so the pics are not that great, but I'll try to get new ones up when it's sunnier.



Above:  A little action shot just for scale.  The red dots continue around the ring.



Above:  This one is my favorite!

 

Above:  Colors on the ring and pendant are identical. No idea why they look different in the pic.



Above:  Stargate earth sign, apparently (or so says the friend I made them for) : p



Hope you like them!  Comments are always appreciated.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrinky Dink Pendant-palooza (several pics) on: March 19, 2007 11:35:47 AM
Underhill940's great post here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155969.0  inspired me to gather up the shrinky dink pendants that are drifting around my desk for a little photo shoot.

I found that I was forever looking at my doodles and thinking they would make cute pendants/charms, only to find I couldn't draw them exactly the same way twice, so I've started keeping little pre-cut and hole-punched pieces of shrink plastic at my desk so that I can doodle on them instead. 

This is what I found/got around to photographing this morning:




Above:  The first two pendants on the top row are a chinese dragon symbol.  The second one is on clear plastic.  The first pendant on the bottom row is for a friend and is apparently an earth symbol from Stargate.





NOTE:  None of the pendants are flaking, it's just cloudy out today, so I had to take pics indoors using a flash.  I'll try to get better pics up when the weather clears.

Thanks for looking!

I actually did these a while ago, but it has taken me forever to get a pic. These are my first multi-part pieces and they were really fun to make.

I've been commenting for a while, but this is my first thread.   Grin

I used Shrinky Dink to make these GameCube controller earrings for a friend.
