I thought you may find it interesting to see what  I  do to make each SHRINKETS mold  I sell. This video  DOES NOT include the process I go through actually  designing  the prototype  for  each mold that is then used to make the rubber molds  so I can cast the design over and over. Designing the mold prototype  is another process.

Fun Inspiration  and buying goodies for the Shrinkets shop at Creativation ( craft and hobby trade show ) this weekend . SO I challenge any of you gals with a Gelli print block to try shrink plastic on it and then form a bead using my molds .Let me know how it works. I thought it might be really great ORRRR  maybe not so great .

My FAVORITE metal smith artist is Susan Chin. I own several of her pieces and one never leaves my hand,  my engagement ring from Mark . Bought for me in 2006 . I wear it flanked on both sides with my wedding bands. 

A bit about Susan 

Susans' path as a jeweler began with a handed down box of tools and a class at the "Y" in Philadelphia. The inheritance of tools included some bits of ebony and bone; materials that continue to compel Susan decades later.

Other materials she  employs are sterling and fine silver, yellow golds, shakudo (a copper and gold alloy), pearls, stones precious and not so precious , mirrors, mokume gane, glass and other unobtainium.

Visit  Susan site .


Thanks Susans' for creating your magically work for us to enjoy

PANTONE 18-3838 ULTRA VIOLET, Is the  PANTONE® color of the  year 
 Think  Marie Schrader, Walt's sister -in  law in Breaking Bad. This is a   hard color to embrace in an  across  the  boards design sense. However  I have put together some images that show  what an impact it can make in decorating, fashion ,nature  and art . 

 SHRINKETS  shrink plastic using Archival Shades of purple  ink pads  , stencils and stamps on SHRINKETS   brand shrink plastic -opulent white and  silver  glitter.

Last but not least The Voilet Eyes Of Ms. Taylor's 

Are you inspired to use this  color in your life this year ?
