The brand new shrink plastic jewelry book Shrink! Shrank! Shrunk! has loads of how-to information to get you comfortable working with shrink plastic, followed by step-by-step instructions for more than 30 projects made by many top Etsy jewelry designers.

Making this jewelry feels like playing: There’s something magical about taking a very thin, flexible sheet of plastic, cutting and decorating it, popping it in the oven, and then watching it transform into something about a third of its original size and nine times as thick.

Shrink plastic is sold by the sheet in packages, and you can find it easily in most craft chains, in many art supply stores, and online, including at shrinkydinks.com.

The book is now available online at BN.com (including as a digital Nook book) and Amazon.com or ask for it at your local bookstore or bead shop!

You can check out more of designer Tonia Mo’s shrink plastic jewelry at greenmot.etsy.com. And join Lark Jewelry & Beading on Facebook for daily pics of great jewelry and beadwork, craft and jewelry community news, and alerts to free projects and giveaways. EXCITING UPDATE: You can now download THREE more projects in the book (Cat and Milk Brooch by Kathy Sheldon, Not-Your-Grandmother’s Cameos by Tamara Berg, and Paper Plane Ride Necklace by Stasia Burrington) by clicking right here.
