Functional/Recycled Art Challenge 11/1 - 11/30

Calling all artsy and crafty people! I have a challenge for you!
Look over the Live Workshop I did in October, which is transcribed in this month's Zine.

The first part of the workshop describes how to make charms or pendants from a piece of a plastic take-out lid. All you have to do is draw a picture on a lid, cut out a shape, punch a hole and bake it for a few minutes. The plastic will shrink up to 4 times smaller. You'll have a neat miniature detailed drawing on a charm or pendant!
This technique could be used not just for jewelry, but also Christmas ornaments, sun-catchers, parts of mobiles, etc. (BTW, rubber stamping and certain painting can also be used instead of drawing). If you have questions, post them in the Challenge thread in the Functional Art section on the EBSQ Forum. Be sure to post your finished pieces there, too!

Since I would LOVE to see what others can create with this technique, I'm offering prizes to the best example of ANYTHING using this technique!

Add an entry into your portfolio 11/1 - 11/30/07.
Post in this thread a link.
We'll vote in Dec.
Winner will receive their choice of either a pair of my handmade
earrings or a pair of my handmade cuff-links. Photos of prizes will be
posted to the thread around mid-month (after I make them!).
I'll be joining the challenge myself, but will not be eligible for prizes.

Be Good - Be Green - Be Inspired
and Good Luck!
