So apparently I'm in a real shrinkydink phase hehe. I made a peacock bracelet today. (coloured with pencil crayons). The colours in the photo below arent as vibrant as they are in reall life, but whatcha gonna do? (besides learn how to use your camera better! lol) Here it is all finished and put together:

Blurry pic of it on:

The back of the completed piece, which I think actually looks cooler than the front Tongue (you can really see the difference if you go to the full size pic)

I've included a whole bunch of process pics 'cause I know how much I like to see how people get from point a to b in crafting Smiley
Beginning sketch


closeups of the back ..

Just before baking - I always have to remind myself to punch all the holes in beforehand and am continuously kicking myself when I forget! Thankfully I remembered this time!

..and all baked up!

Thanks for looking at alllll those pictures! Hehe .. Wink

THIS IS AWESOME! I am serious. I love the detail in the piece, the thought of breaking it up with jump rings to make it curve without actually curving it is so clever!
This is why I love this site becasue sometimes I just don't think of those sorts of things on my own.
I also really love the way you colored it with shading and everything. Not just flat. Very pretty!

This is fantastic, and a great idea. The illustration itself is gorgeous, too!

This is INCREDIBLE. I love love love peacocks and your colors are lovely. I'm gonna go find some shrinky dinks tomorrow, you've totally inspired me!

I'm an artist and crafter. I will privately (and happily!) swap anything I can ship in an envelope!

Thanks so much guys. Smiley

I'm thinking of starting an Etsy store and have a question for you all (I hope this isn't against the posting rules re: selling, if it is mods just lemme know and I'll edit):

What would you guys see as a fair price for something like this? I'm wondering for this piece in particular as its quite involved (comparitively to most of the other shrinkydink things i've done) in the making..

I don't know how much I would buy it for, but I definitely would buy it! *WIST*
