I have a little geek in me. Do you?

When this idea came to me, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I had to make it.

After I started working on it I didn't stop until I finished.

Wore it today and about a hundred people got all wide eyed and exclaimed, "Bazinga!"

Too much fun.





This was an alternate version I made but I decided that it was missing something.




I was a part of the "She Blinded me with Science Swap" about a year ago and I made a bag with this I <3 math stamp. I decided to make that into a necklace



Anyway. I'm the most decked out geek I know!

Why haven't  I though of doing this yet? I bought a cricut and have used it maybe ten times*sheepish grin* (I know, what am I waiting for, right?!) Now I'm gonna fire it up

great job on the necklace! I too am in geek love with Sheldon Cooper!

Is that what you used to cut it with?  A Cricut?  If so, I need me one of them!!!  I have been eyeing one for years, but I am not sure if DH would know what it was if I asked for it for my birthday or Christmas.

I didn't even know what a Cricut was until I posted this and read some of the comments. I had to look it up!

I'll have to look into it though because if it would make my life easier and get rid of the tons and tons of filing that I have to do to make my pieceslook good, then I want one too! Right now I use an exacto knife and lots of elbow grease and I end up with a lot of cuts on my finger tips.

If anybody has any luck with the cricut let me know because I may be needing one!

Love the show, love the phrase and love the necklace!  I agree that the second version is better, although the first is great, that little extra did it!

I just looked at your store and your materials says acrylic.  Just curios if that is what you used or is this shrinky dink?

I think your necklaces are AWESOME!!!

And I am not 100% sure, but besides using the Cricut to cut your designs,
you can also use the Cuttlebug and dies too...

I haven't worked with Shrinky~Dink but I know they BOTH cut stencil plastic...

I have no idea why, but I totally thought that shrinky dinks were made out of extruded acrylic. I swear that I saw it on a package of Shrink Plastic but obviously I didn't because after some research, I see that it's made from extruded polystyrene.

I guess I'd better change my listings now. Ugh!

I love your necklaces, I've just ordered a huge pack of Shrinkies to have a go at jewellery making. Do you paint them with acrylics then? I remember when I used to colour them and they never turned out that well.

I am totally not brave enough to do this by hand but if I can find a way to get my cuttlebug (I still don't have a cricut) to do something similar I will be the happiest girl alive! You rock... math geeks unite!! Thanks for the inspiration!!!!!!
