Thanks so much guys!

pugwash: if you mean 'special paper' to draw the sketch on then no, it was just a regular old sketchbook. The actual peacock is made out of shrinky dink. Shrinky dink is a thin plastic-y material that you decorate and then put in the oven and it shrinks down in size while thickening and becoming more durable. Great for jewelry if you don't have a lot of money! (like me! lol)

Since it's been so long since I've used Shrinkydinks, I can't remember what you use to color it?  Just regular colored pencils?

That is so cool! I've never seen shrinky dink paper used in that manner. You're very creative.

Oh, and I adore peacocks.

Ahh, I didn't know there was actual shrinky-dink plastic available outside of the little kits.

Very beautiful piece!

As for the price question, Im not sure if this goes against the rules but if it does, please let me know and I will remove it.  Take into consideration the amount of time it took you to make it, decide how much you want to pay yourself per hour of work you did and then add in the cost of materials.  That is something that artists and crafters have a hard time deciding; how much is their time worth.

Hope that helps you decide a price.  Very gorgeous and original piece of wearable art, truly.
