Polymer Clay Fun for Valentine's Day!

Here are some absolutely lovely polymer clay charms & pendants I made recently for, you guessed it, a Valentine's Day Swap! :)

Without further ado, pictures:

I made doubles of EVERYTHING--> I originally had one partner and then inherited another for a total of TWO partners! Hence the doubles. :) But still, each one is UNIQUE because they are formed using my fingers individually. Wootz!

I used red pearl and white pearl clays, with a small smattering of plum for the flowers. Of course, I had to accent with rose quartz and cute little crystals. I also used a metal stamp, (LOL!), to make the indents of the little hearts.

Those little hearts you see on the white pearl clay are hand formed, for the most part. I used a toothpick to make the indent between the two "humps."

I do use a few cutters, some in the round and a diamond one to cut out the triangles between the humps of the hearts. :) Cutting those out by just using a knife would be pretty time-consuming, IMHO.

My favorite tools:
sharp knives/razor blades
bamboo skewers
diamond polymer clay cutter
round polymer clay cutters (Thanks for these, Kerri!)

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!


  1. So sweet, Andrea... I think hearts are the most fun shape to create with :)

      Hearts are awesome to make. But I'm a little biased! ;)
