Happy Valentine's Day!

When we think of Valentine's day we often think of a heart shape since the heart has been used for decades to express the depth of our love. Words like "She makes my heart sing!" or "My Heart longs for you.", or, sadly, "He broke my heart." bespeak just a few of the emotions attributed to the heart.

Singers and song writers have been made wealthy with music of, to and from the heart.

Along with a heart shape, the traditional flower of the day seems to be a rose. Millions of women may be receiving a rose or a number of roses all over America on this day when we declare our love for one another.

On this day of hearts and roses I'd like to share this polymer clay 'Key To My Heart' pin tutorial with you.  To download the tutorial, click the underlined words above.

The roses, leaves, keys and heart keyhole are molded in a variety of colored polymer clay. The beads and border of the heart pin are made with scraps of clay.

Add a bit of wire and some beads for a bit of movement.
Parts in the PJ008 Roses and Butterflies mold.
A pin back or pendant loop finishes the project.

Have a very happy and loving 
Valentine's Day!

 Yours, Penni Jo

If desired, you can find the mold on our website.
