Funky polymer clay heart with tatting in progress

I made this funky, colorful heart in polymer clay, with holes around the edge for joining a lacy edging. So far I've tatted all the way around the heart, using rings and chains in size 10. Now, to decide what to do next. I want to finish this as a necklace.

That is VERY cool! I love how colorful and whimsical it looks. I gave one of my girls a shrinky dink set for Christmas - it might get hijacked!

Wow! Your tatting is just exquisite. When you hand dyed the yarn you took tatting up a notch, when added beads it became thrilling, now your beautiful tatting is totally over the top with the polymer clay! I do recall you did a freeform clay heart something in a mag around this time a year ago?

yarnplayer said...

Oh my, I'm not sure I can complete the necklace finishing well enough to do justice to all these wonderful comments! Anyway, yes, I did have an article published about combining polymer clay with tatting in Belle Armoire Jewelry Winter 2009.

very cool. I was thinking of doing something like this with that very light foam clay.. it is air dried.

yarnplayer said...

Sounds intriguing - I've never worked with that material. Let us know how it turns out!

It unbelievably gorgeous! Would make a wonderful brooch or pin.

Can't' wait to see the end product and wishing you an endless well of creativity to continue your work.
