This is a stamped shrinky dink pendant hung on a simple string of beads, fastened with a clasp in back.  I was going for minimalist look with this piece...    Cool

Perfect. You've nailed the minimalist right on it's minimal head. I love the blue and white, it reminds me of a china pattern.

Yeah, it's very Spode--only cool instead of stuffy.  I may have to revisit shrinky dinks... it's been a long time but I'm so impressed with your results.

Thanks for all the terrific feedback, you guys!  I highly recommend using stamps to make shrinky dinks.  Although it requires you to buy a larger stamp to allow for the shrinkage, the details and color preserve nicely.  I was shocked at how well this one turned out too--it was my first ever stamped shrinky dink.  Another fantastic feature of stamping is the consistency of the process.  So, I could easily make two perfectly matching shrinky dinks for earrings, or anything else that requires duplicates.  I usually have more trouble duplicating my freehand ones...but maybe that's just me.   Undecided
