Making a Shrinky Dink Statement Necklace Part 1.
Once I had all of my Shrinky Dink components colored, cut out, hole punched, and baked, it was time to put the whole thing together. I made 35 little discs and used 26 of them for the necklace. I started by making the individual dangles first. I use stainless steel wire because I don't care about sterling on costume jewelry.
I used several different beads in when connecting the dangles to the chain.
I played with the placement of the sizes and the colors. I have been making a lot of asymmetrical necklaces lately but I knew I wanted this piece to be symmetrical since the components were so busy. It took about 4 hours to make the shrinky dinks (OK, I was watching a movie while I was making them so I am not sure how productive I actually was during a couple of those hours.) And it took me under an hour to put it all together.
I love how light weight the piece is and how it gently jingles when I wear it.
