So... a couple nights ago, I was home alone and decided to do some shrinky-dinking! Because everyone loves shrinky dinkies. Smiley

Anyway, here are some of the things I made

Here's all 4 together.

These ones I made a couple months before, but I've been too busy wearing them almost every day to post. Smiley

These are probably my favorite shrinky dink earrings, they make me so happy. ^_^
They were very easy, just small squares with holes in the corners on about 2 inches of chain.

These earrings have very oddly shaped triquetrae, with random metal squares that I had left over from another project. Before anyone asks, I am not a Satanist and I don't wear the triquetrae as religious or spiritual symbols. I got asked that a lot when I wore them out today, which is why I say that.

These ones are kind of a combination of the previous 2, they have small square yin-yang symbols hanging on some more of those square thingys.

I'm really happy with all of my projects, shrinky dinks make everything come out so much better. Please excuse the strange expressions, trying to take pictures on 4 hours of sleep with a laptop camera does NOT equal excellent results.  Undecided Comments/questions/concerns are welcome.  Grin

The girl is crafty like ice is cold!

I love your use of 'dinks to make small items with a lot of detail instead of medium-sized ones. Very unique and different. Smiley

That is an awesome use of shrinky-dinks! The triquetras are especially nifty Smiley (I can't believe people seriously associate them with satanism, though.)

I have yet to use shrinky dink stuff, even as a kid. I've got to make myself try it out now!
