Introduction: Muybridge Cat Locomotion Necklace

This is a necklace I made out of type 6 plastic (shrinky dinks) and a craft cutter using Make the Cut software.

The black silhouettes are from Eadweard Muybridge's locomotion studies of a cat running and leaping.

I made it using the same technique I describe in this instructable.

Thanks for looking!

    Hi, I'm very familiar with Shrinky Dinks, so have no problems with making the parts themselves, but I just can't quite see how you linked them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you :-D

    What I did was I just threaded the string in and out through the cats and the colored rectangles. It is all held together with black stretchy elastic string

    It looks lovely! Could you please make an Instructable so we could try to make one?

    I made it using the same technique I described here:

    Unfortunately the company that sells the software was sued and can no longer distribute their program to work with the cricut.  But that's how I did it.
