Playing with Shrinkadinks

 

I have a thing about Shrink plastic.

My friend likes Peacock tail feathers and it was her birthday towards the end of last month, so I thought I would have a go at something I had been meaning to do for a while – Shrinkadink jewellery.

I sourced clear Shrinkies paper and drew a Peacock tail feather on to a piece roughly A5 in size, with my trusty sharpies.

After a stint in the oven, the feather was about 5cms long – perfect for a pendant.

I had also treated myself to some jewellery findings and pliers and had a lovely time making a necklace for the pendant.
