A cute, cheap swallow necklace
I made this necklace of a cute little swallow by tracing the image that I wanted onto shrink plastic and then making little dots of color with permanent markers. I attached some jump rings, chain, and a clasp and now I love my new necklace. :D

I used a piece of shrink plastic that was about the size of a piece of printer paper. And I did attach the jump rings after it was shrunk.

What size of sheet of shrink plastic did you use? I've never used this before and all the types i'm seeing shrink to much smaller then your lovely necklace. Sorry for sounding like a noob!

Fantastic image and jewellery. Could I ask some advice: I used sharpies but how do you stop the colour coming off? I've tried nail varnish, varnish, pva and other stuff but nothing works? any ideas?

Did you do the entire thing with sharpies? or did you use colored pencils for the 1st layer and speckle over?

I would suggest using white shrink plastic. That's what I used. Happy

Its beautiful! I tried this, but the colours just didn't show up Happy
Any tips? I used black shrink plastic and red, blue and green sharpies. I coloured in the rough side of the plastic but they are very dull, dark colours (you can hardly make them out at all). Thanks for any advice you can offer xx
