Loving Steampunk Heart

I had fun making this necklace, yes necklace- not just a pendant like usual but a finished necklace. The gears on the side of the heart are connected to the chain. I loved the idea of a metallic red to silver heart that has stood the test of time. This isn't the heart for the weak, this heart has been battered and repaired but is still going strong. It's available in my FantasyClay Artfire store now. It's not a traditional mother's day gift but then not all mother's are traditional.

Polymer Clay Tutorials

I am always looking for new things to make in polymer clay, and also going back to old favorites. I've been indulging more frequently in some books but tutorials are a big part of how I got to where I am today. Ok maybe you don't want to be demented like me but in case you are looking for ideas or a jumping point, I put together a list of some of my favorite polymer clay tutorials.  They just a page away.
This list is as much for me as you. Putting it all together in one place helps. Most of them are free, the few I added that weren't, really are worth looking at though, namely Christi Friesen's. But still try one or two of her free ones to get an idea. I fear mine is still not free but I will be putting up a free version again soon.
