Hello all!

I was totally inspired by gwennie363's tutorial on making some Shrinky Dink rings, so I decided to make my own!  I took some liberties with them as far as colors (one is a made up stone), and I made some have silver bands instead of gold.  I colored all of the parts with fine tip Sharpies and Primacolor markers, no colored pencil here!  On with the photos!

The made-up stone (amethyst mixed with amber) and the "sapphire" (which was supposed to be a diamond, but turned out too blue....Sad

These are VERY pretty, they also remind me strongly of the ZPM's in Stargate Atlantis, the colours you have used are very similar!  Sorry had to point out that likeness, after all I am a huge fan of the show!

I really like the amthyst and amber one - looks very 'stained glass' to me Cheesy
