Shrinky Dink Jewelry by Alianna Jacqua
So, I admit it! I am having a hard time getting over the swooping bird imagery. It's out there, everyone's doing it, and still I am smitten. Show me a bird in flight and I'm over the moon. So when designer Alianna Jaqua strolled into Flirt the other day with this pendant, needless to say, I was in love. I wish I could have gotten a better shot of the white one (below) because it is awesome and pure white and is the perfect thing to wear with a simple tank dress on the hottest of days.
She makes them from shrink plastic, or, for those of us who remember, the same material used for that favorite childhood past time, Shrinky Dinks! Of course, in my plastic baking days, I never made a Shrinky Dink that looked like that!
Or like these:
Each one is done by hand so each is a one-of-a-kind. Earrings range from $28-$34 and necklaces are $38 and are available at Flirt on 5th Ave!
