Hearts and Flowers

I've been promising myself for some time now that I would make more bezels, especially ones that I can combine with my polymer clay faux-tique beads and cabochons.

So last weekend I made myself take out time and create some.

This heart shaped pendant is one of the results.

I created the interior of the heart bezel to fit some of the heart shapes I've already been making.

The back is a brushed metal, and I put on a dark coppery-bronze patina and aged it really well, like an attic antique.

The front reminds me of carved bone or ivory, but with a hint of yellow and green color.

Like daffodils, from faded flowers long ago. It's my new favorite.

And I can't wait to make up some more. I have an oval one in the works, and a rounded circle, I just haven't finished off the castings quite yet.

Thanks, friends - I gave myself the night off in the studio last night and had dinner like real folks! But tonight I have to get back to the studio after the day job ends and get some more things in the works.

I have a head full of ideas of things to make, and my fingers are itching to be covered in paint, tonight they get their wish, LOL
