“Terracotta” Clay Heart Pendant

I received a surprise comment on my black Goth heart pendant and decided on the spur of the moment to make another with some pink and brown polymer clay scraps.

I chopped up the brown into the tiniest of pieces and worked them into the pink. Then made two equal balls, rolled them to a point in my palm, put them side by side to make each side of the heart. The different use of the connector, originally intended as a necklace clasp, will still do the same job but in a different way.

It was placed on the right side of the heart and sealed in by a back protrusion with ‘bake and bond’ before baking. I created a small clay bow and placed it on the bottom side of the heart with ‘bake and bond’. This original necklace connector has a bar that will attach to a silver chain and easily fit into the embedding scrolled opening of the flower so it hangs just a bit off center.

It can also hang from ribbon. After sanding and rubbing, I used a mix of butterscotch and watermelon alcohol ink for a little coloring. I will also use a paste wax on it for shine and protection.
