Create your own eco-friendly pendant by fusing leaf shapes cut from plastic grocery bags together into a feathery looking focal. Add chain and a glass pearl for a simple necklace.
Wow Could have fooled me. I thought that was bronze.
ABFAB!!! What a clever idea (and the person who thought of it) that smell is all my plastic bags being morphed into wonderful jewellery!!!!
Hi Derya, pendant looks beautiful, but can't begin to imagine how you did it! Well done and thank you for posting it, I enjoyed seeing it. Suzie, Queensland Australia.
Is the pendant hard or crunchy? This is one of those things that I need to see to "get it."

It's NOT eco-friendly! The gases that are released when you heat them are very toxic!
I checked with the MSDS sheet for the plastic bags that I use. I also checked with a chemist.(my daughter-in-law has her PhD in Chemistry) As long as the plastic doesn't exceed the temps stated on the MSDS sheet, it's safe.
For the plastic bags I use, it gets dangerous at 300 degrees. I don't burn them and they don't get anywhere near that high of a temp.
Be safe and check the MSDS sheets for the type of plastic you're working with.
Hi - What a great idea - what did you use to stiffen the bag pieces?
