Tiny White Elephants

PRODUCT STORY
The item is first designed in either Photoshop or Illustrator and then printed or hand drawn onto shrinky dink paper. It is then cut out and all rough and sharp edges are sandpapered down. I bake the items for about 2.5 minutes and once cool, I apply a resin-like sealer to make the charms water-resistant. Once nice and dry I glue the earring post on and place in tiny glass bottles.

These pieces are designed in my room and the shrinky dink baking occurs in the kitchen in my Southern California home.

Our Jewelry Design Challenge is in full force, and these shrinky dink Tiny White Elephants stampeded through to our voting app. Would you take charge and wear these fun earrings?

Love this concept, ideas are endless-great idea and extra credit for affordability! People can afford more than one pair which should translate to bigger overall sales

thank you for taking the time to vote for my elephants. i wanted to take the time to answer some questions and address some concerns that were made. frderica: don't worry, there are no political statements being made with these elephants. i find them to be majestic and adorable animals. rhonda: because of their miniature size, too much detail would not read and you would end up with a small blob on your ear instead of a tiny elephant. Dianna: i do indeed design other items. Stephanie: i got a little piggy just for you. i do agree that the shrinky dink paper itself is not that expensive however it's what you do with it that matters. you must take into consideration the labor and design time. not to mention the other supplies used. i consider my jewelry very reasonably priced for all the work it does take to make something that is extremely meticulous to make. keep the comments coming and i will take the time to answer any questions you may have! thanks for your support of Unicorn Crafts!

Since an election will soon be here before we know it, how about some donkeys and tea cups as well? They are cute and not out of price range.
