Valentine Steam Punk Heart

It's been way past time to create with clay again.  I decided to start back with a valentine inspired creation.  The heart is crafted from polymer clay, wire, glass vials and gears; I use pink tones, and brushed a pearly copper powder over all the metallic clay accents to pull the different colors together. The imbedded glass vials are filled with micro glass beads in further pink tones.   It's pretty neat, when worn the content of the vials shift around.   As always I love to use silk sari ribbon and in this case I threaded it through a vintage gold chain. Hope you enjoy and are inspired to create your own
