I'd pay 20ish. And as poor as I am, that's a lot, sooo... yeah.

wow. I love that. It has definately inspired me too! May I ask what size paper you started the sketch on? I have never used shrinky dink and am not sure how much it really shrinks Smiley

Thanks Smiley The original sketch was done on a regular 8 1/2" x 11" (ish) sketchbook. A piece of shrinkydink starts at 8" x 10" and shrinks down to about  3 1/2" x 4 3/8". When you buy shrinkydinks, they come with a little conversion ruler so that you know how big you need to draw your original in order for it to be the proper size once shrunk.

Hope that helps Smiley

Hitting This Rocks! Wow! I love the detailed coloring you did. I was wondering just looking at the first pic how you got it to curve. Great idea!

gorgeous! you are so talented!

as far as selling it goes, take into consideration how much time and effort it takes to make a piece like this. don't sell yourself short! try searching for similar jewelry on etsy as well, to see how they are priced. Smiley

I second Nesse, I always start out shopping around for similar items on etsy before I set any prices.  I also try to make sure that I absolutely do NOT go below $8 an hour for my work.  Sure, someone else might be selling a similar item for way less, but... etsy shoppers know quality when they see it Smiley
