    Shrink Plastic

    I've used shrink plastic quite a lot in my designs and I tend to find that an image around 3inches tall gave a nice sized charm when shrunk Here is one I have found that shrinking it in the oven is also better than using a heat tool, its a more even shrink... Hope that helps

    Hey can anyone say,...

    Really lovely makes I think they look neat and professional already... I think the most simple way to make things look professional is to just hone your techniques so they are neat and then your jewellery speaks for itself...I had a student once who just practiced wrapped loops for a week and in the end they were perfect, better than mine!!

    Have you ever used these beads

    Yes I have used beaded beads loads but I never pay that much for them, I usually pay under 30p each for large ones...PM me if you would like a link to the shop
