I have been doing mostly shrinky dink jewelry until I saw some great beads at walmart.  Some were wooden, some were these beautiful moonstones, and I also got a bag full of turquoise colored plastic beads.  I have made six pieces so far, and still have beads left over!  These are the first I've done like this and would love some feedback.  Thanks for looking.  All comments are welcome.

These are a couple of earrings:



These are the two necklaces, the chains are made completely from eye pins:

Thanks for the comment on my jewelry! I thot I'd check out what you've done & the shrinky-dinks are SO cute my dd would love them! I SO LOVE the blue jewelry, esp the 1st pic set of earrings and the necklace made from eye pins. I haven't started using these eye pins yet, but you've convinced me, I have to get me some, hehehe!

Thanks for the complement.  You should definitely try the eye pins!  They are super easy to use.  I like them because I can have the look of a chain, without having to go out and buy a chain.  I can never seem to keep chain around, and the local craft store is not close enough to go very often.
