In this project, I took 1 1/2" x 1 3/4" pieces of shrink art film (plastic) and created a series of mini masterpieces patterned after famous American artists. I had originally created WAY too many, but the final bracelet has 8 panels to fit my wrist. This is a lovely way to introduce students to basic jewelry making skills as well.
|These are the tiles after shrinking, but before I linked them with the jump rings.|
Can you name all of the artists? The first one is tricky since it is so dark,
it's a heart like Jim Dine...
|The finished bracelet, all linked together. Some of the panels (above)|
didn't make it since I only needed 8 for my wrist.
