Shrink Art Jewelry

In the Zentangle 5 book by Suzanne McNeill, CZT there are quite a few different methods to make zentangle jewelry.  All of the methods have step-by-step instructions that are very easy to follow. I decided to try the shrink art that is displayed by Sue Jacobs, CZT   I have never worked with Shrinky Dinks before and found it to be quite strange and amazing stuff.  You draw the tangles on the shrink plastic quite a bit larger than what the piece turns out to be when it shrinks in the oven, which makes it very easy to tangle on the larger size.  I only tried the necklaces but Sue has instructions for bracelets and earrings too.  One of these days, I will be trying out some of the other great methods in this book.  If you are looking for zentangle jewelry ideas, check out this book!
