Flower Charm Bracelet

Recently I created a few pieces of jewelry as “Artist in Residence” projects for Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko and I am excited to share them with you this week. 

Today’s piece uses shrink plastic stamped with flowers in StazOn Ink to make the charms for this bracelet.

 Here is how to create this wrist adornment:
  1. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for preparing shrink plastic. 
  2. Stamp circular flower elements (Wishes by Penny Black) on the prepared shrink plastic using Ultramarine StazOn ink.  Immediately clean stamps after use. 
  3. Let the stamped impressions dry for approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Die cut the stamped circles using Spellbinders Standard Circles.
  5. Punch a 1/8” hole on each side of the plastic circle.
  6. Heat the shrink plastic circles according to the manufacturer’s directions.
  7. Link the circles with jump rings, beads and finish with a clasp.

I will have a second piece later this week that has Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko’s new metal dog tags!

Thank you for visiting,
