This necklace was made for my mother in honor of my brother (Joel) who is in the Canadian Armed Forces. It was made with shrink plastic, is hand-drawn, and I put it on a gunmetal finsihed rolo chain. She loves it!

This is amazing, I hit THIS ROCKS.

Is it bent? Or did you just cut out the center?

Not bent, but that is a good idea... I'll have to experiment with that.
On this one, I just cut out the center. It's easier that way I guess.

Great job!  No need to experiment with the bending.  You made it look authentically 3D with the shading in all the right places.  I'm amazed at the great stuff that can be made with shrink plastic.
May God bless Joel.

I really really like this! It's very pretty. It's great that it has so much meaning behind it as well. Great job!

That is beautiful!  I think I'm starting to regret not buying the Shrinky Dink kit at a yard sale last weekend...  Undecided
