Tiny Red Polymer Clay Heart Pendant Made By One of My Sweethearts

Tiny Red Heart Pendant

Happy Valentines Day from The Polymer Clay Tutor:

Nothing warms my heart more than the love of a child. That is why for Valentines Day I wanted to share with you an adorable little heart pendant made for me, by my 9 year old son Fisher. Here’s a picture of him on Halloween as the Polymer Clay Spooker. By the way, he doesn’t always look like a mad scientist.

You know it’s funny… people must really feel the love he put into this project. Because every time I’ve worn it since he gave it to me on Mother’s Day last year, the piece has received so many wonderful compliments. It’s been admired even more than some of the really complicated and detailed pendants that I’ve made.

I adore this tiny, simple, childlike red heart. Every time I wear it, my son looks at me with tenderness in his eyes. He worked so carefully on it with his small fingers. And I’ll always remember how he wouldn’t tell me what or who it was for, when he asked me to bake it for him.

I know Valentines is the holiday for lovers. But for me and probably for many other moms, it is also about the love of your family.

So today I would like to say: Happy Valentines Doug (my DH)… you are still my Sweetie after all of these years. Happy Valentines Willow (she’s my little girl who made the penguin charm in this polymer clay kids crafts photo) … you make me so proud to be your Mom. And Happy Valentines Fisher… your heart warms mine every day of my life.

And to everyone who has come and become part of my world here at BeadsandBeading.com, I would also like to wish you a very Happy Valentines Day for yourself and all of your Sweethearts!

I, too, feel like you are a long time, good friend, and I enjoy “the time we spend together” as I learn from you each day. I wish you, your husband, and your children much love peace and harmony! Happy Valentines Day!!! :)

    Happy Valentines Anna and Cindy! You are both such sweethearts and it has my pleasure getting to know you!

    Thank you so much for all your comments and support! You are very special to me.

    btw Cindy, I tried to leave a comment on your blog but it directed me to a Go Daddy page. Thought you should know if you didn’t already.

    Cindy, I think I fixed it. Click on my name on this post, not the upper one, and I believe it works now.

    Thanks so much!
