Spiraling Heart Pendant
Shiny Pearl Magenta is lined with flat black clay and wrapped together around a silver ring making a unique valentine necklace. It may look as though the project has been glazed, but I simply buffed the clay after baking. The magenta pearl and many of the other Premo pearl colors produce a dazzling shine with very little effort. Double figure eight links combined with a silver ball bead, suspend the metal ring with the spiraling heart. Alcohol ink and a rubber stamp help to add a contemporary design. I used a very old rubber stamp I dug out of my stash because the leaf pattern on it was very small and would not result in too many blank magenta spaces. Got a rubber stamp with small heart shapes? That would be perfect!
Before you begin, condition clay.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Setting numbers vary on clay conditioning machines. On my Sculpey machine the thickest setting is 1 and the thinnest is 9.
Remove the ink from the rubber stamp as soon as possible with an old toothbrush and 91% Isopropyl Alcohol.
