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?

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!
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!

Wow, you cut all of those out of Shrinky Dink?  I gotta give you props girl, that is awesome work!  I use the dink and it's fun but go get stuff that perfect is not easy!

I don't watch much TV so I don't get the reference.  The first thing I thought of when I saw it was Bewitched.  Its a little bit witchy.  Or maybe I'm just a Halloween freak  Smiley

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.
