Geometrically Inspired NecklaceTutorials

By on Monday, January 23, 2012 5 Comments

This wonderful collection of necklace tutorials are all geometrically inspired. The designers used a variety of materials for their designs - shrink plastic, metal and polymer clay. The results are certainly striking!


Shrink plastic such as the Shrinky Dinks brand has been around for a long time. But lately, jewelry enthusiasts are stepping up to the plate by producing really awesome jewelry. Check this past post as well as this one for other awesome shrink plastic tutorials.

Maria from the Livlig blog created the striking black and white geometric necklace above using a marker pen on shrink plastic!

Sarah over at This Crazy Blessed Life also made her own Anthro knock off necklace for herself and her little daughter from shrink plastic. Don't you think the hexagon creation is perfectly titled as the Queen Bee and Me necklace


Marianna Jewles's super geometric necklace video tutorial features triangles. Instead of shrink plastic, she uses aluminum sheets.  She seals the painted triangles with cold glass resin which gives an enameled look.


I also loved Lindsay of Delighted Momma's triangle polymer clay pendant tutorial. It's simple but stunning with well chosen colors.  As she says, the color combinations are endless.

  4. I'm not sure where one gets cold glass resin - try asking the designer. An alternative I can suggest is ICE resin which is available from some jewelry suppliers.

  5. The first one needs a "Doppler effect" one.
    Nice group of designs.
