Give Your Heart Wings With A Monarch Butterfly Cane:
With Valentines Day fast approaching, now is the time to be making your heart shaped beads and sweet heart pendants. Whether you make polymer clay jewerly for yourself, for gift giving or for selling at an Etsy store, you had better get a move on. Today’s photo is of my latest Valentines Jewelry project… a winged heart pendant.
I had originally planned for this pendant to be a simple heart shaped bead, embellished with a just a few polymer clay cane slices. But as I dug through my collection of polymer clay canes, I came across a monarch butterfly wing cane from a while back, and decided to give this piece some wings.
Well one thing led to another and I ended up with what you see in the photo, complete with a tiny brass key. There are so many obvious symbolisms here that I have chosen not to name the pendant. It has just the right amount of quirkiness to really appeal to me… so I’ll probably end up keeping it for myself.
