1  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / where to buy charms or pendants on: December 16, 2007 06:01:09 AM

So I love love love finding cute little charms and funky pendants. Does anyone know of a place in the city to search for such things? I've been to M+J Trimming and they have a small selection, but I've already exhausted their supply.

Thanks alot
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / shrinky dink question on: November 07, 2007 12:46:33 PM
So my new shrinky dinks came in the mail today (acutal shrinky dink brand) And to my dismay when I opened the package I found that they they are smooth on both sides, whereas the ones I've used in the past have a rough side on which a can use pencils. Is there any differene between the two? Do you have any suggestions as to what kind of marker to use on the smooth ones? Also, how do I know what I'm buying because it doesn't specify on the package that they are 'smooth' or anything..

I'm upset I can't use my new colored pencils, and I'm not really good with sharpies/markers..I make too many mistakes! Plus I ordered like 6 packages  Undecided

well thanks for your help with my silly questions!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cryptozoology shrinky-dink necklaces on: September 29, 2007 02:25:39 PM

So these necklaces are the product of my first endeavor with shrinky dinks. I made charms of everyones favorite cryptids, Bigfoot, Nessie, and a mermaid. What do you think? Any tips for next time I shrink my dinks?

Also, I forgot to poke a hole in nessie before I baked him, so I attached him to the chain by his neck, resulting in him looking like he ws lynched. Any suggestions?

(sorry, gotta post links cause I'm a newbie)




Thank you so much for looking!  Kiss
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / turning coins into jewelry on: September 07, 2007 04:46:14 PM
Hi everybody,

I would love to make a necklace out of some old coins I have. My problem is that I don't know how to secure the coin to the necklace itself. I don't have the means to drill holes in them, and I know that there are little things that you can glue the coin into, but I searched and can't figure out what they're called! (or if they actually exist to begin with and I didn't just make that up in my head)

What do you think of wire wrapping the coin?

Thanks in advance for replying to my very first post!  Grin
