Just as the description says ~ A necklace handmade from recycled plastic bags. Colourful and light-weight to wear AND eco-friendly.  What more can you ask for ;-)

This is great.  I just started learning how to fuse plastic and this would be a great little project for me to try before I tackle something larger.

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.

So why buy what you can craft?  Smiley

Hi,

Thank you all so much for your kind comments!  Feedback is always very much appreciated  Smiley

To answer a lot of your questions:
The plastic is fused.
It is melted with an iron.
There really isn't any need for a tutorial - Fused plastic there are lots of tutorials on-line if you google it, you will find loads.  Once I had that, I just cut the shapes out and joined them to the necklace cord.  Not very impressive skill wise but very quick and very easy which is what I really like!  Grin

Hope that's helpful.

Did you use plastic bags that were these colors, or did you color them in some way?
