Shrink plastic necklace

Shrink plastic. Amazing stuff. 

I decided to make a shrink plastic charm necklace, using clear and translucent shrink plastic. 

I drew a heart template shape, then laid it onto the shrink plastic and drew around it to create the hearts.  I punched holes in all the hearts, ready for the jump rings.

I coloured the clear hearts with Stazon ink, and heated them. While they were still hot, I stamped into them using a 'crackle' stamp inked up with gold Brilliance ink.

I coloured the backs of the translucent hearts with Stazon, then stamped the fronts with a selection of  finely patterned stamps. After heating, I stamped the backs with the gold Brilliance ink and the crackle stamp

I used jump rings to attach all the hearts to the chain, 
and added some beads and a little metal heart to finish it off.

The colour in the image above is close to true, but the detail shows better in the image below.

I hope my swap partner likes it!


  1. These came out so well! A truly gorgeous, inspiring work of jewelry art! I'm sure your swap partner will treasure it forever :-)

  2. This is lovely - great colours and the hearts are so pretty.
