i’m shrinking!
I started working with my Polyshrink again. I made a bunch more components to use in jewelry, although most of them are not quite good enough to use in jewelry that I might sell. But I decided to make a bracelet with the best of them:

There aren’t enough components (I really need to think of something more descriptive than “component”) to make a full bracelet, so I’m going to add the chain as an extender, and I’ll add pearls to that for some extra oomph.

Here is a comparison between the Polyshrink before shinking and after:

Pretty neat, yes? It’s so cool watching the pieces shrink. I think that’s my favorite part!

I’m also planning on submitting a Polyshrink bracelet to Belle Armoire Jewelry to be considered for an article.

grey gardens
About a month ago I watched this HBO movie called Grey Gardens, about a mother and daughter. The mother, Edith, was Jacqueline Kennedy’s aunt, and the daughter, Edie, her cousin. The movie explores the relationship between Edith and Edie and how they started out as wealthy socialites and ended up as hermits living in a decaying, filthy, decrepit house. Edie is played by Drew Barrymore, who is fantastic in this movie. Edie was quite an eccentric, strong personality, but I just fell in love with her. I could have listened to her talk all day, with that strange New York/Boston accent. I loved this movie – I laughed, I cried, I didn’t want it to end. I highly recommend it.
