Heart Season...

Valentine's Day is coming up and I've been moved to make all kinds of heart-themed items.  One of the things that I made was this collection of hearts.  I created them out of polymer clay, stained them with alcohol inks, buffed them with a fine-grit sandpaper, and then hand-buffed them with colored waxes.  I touched them up with acrylic paints and Glider's Paste to bring out the details.  At first, I thought that I might use all of them in a single necklace to make a really chunky statement piece.  But the more I thought about it, I might add a bail and turn them into individual pendants.
