jewlerry for a friend

wanted to make my friend a personalised piece of jewlerry so i found a cute pic of her twin boys and printed off onto shrink plastic..(i love this stuff why have i not discovered it before.i now am going to make bens artworks into a charm bracelet for me i think) shrink plastic is easy to use its like paper and you just need an inkjet printer ..the pic needs to be 50% bigger than you want it to end up as it shrinks obviously and be careful not to touch the pic as it will smudge..then i just added a chain either side fastings and green and silver glass happy with it cost less than £5 to make and about 1.5 hrs
and i made a button bracelet as a sort of trial run ..thats turned out quite well too i think
