Shrink plastic! I remember the first time I saw jewelry made out of shrink plastic. It just about blew my mind. We just got some new shrink plastic in house (coming soon to the website!) and I've been having a blast playing around with it and seeing what I can come up with. Here's my favorite application so far: shiny hot pink heart dangles! What is your favorite thing to do with shrink plastic?
Soutache! If you have been looking at the different beading magazines currently for sale, you will have no doubt seen soutache. This fun technique of stitching cords together, wrapping them around beads, and creating fantastic swirls is quite addictive. I took this photo not on my beading table but on our video table. I am currently making a 5 part video series on the basics of soutache.
