Wearing my heart on my sleeve, or front of my shirt ^_^
So I thought it would be fun to have a heart necklace. I just looked up heart looking cakes/cupcakes, pictures from books, toys, anything that helps you make it.

I'm sorry if my how to may be on the sucky side I ended up not taking pictures and playing with it and creating. So I'm sorry if there are not many pictures. I'll be super happy to answer any questions the best I can. ^_^

    You are then going to be attaching the first piece you made; the "Y" shape,and two other rolled out pieces.

    I also push wire through the long rolled pieces to be able to shape them where they should go and keep them from flailing around.

    Behind the "wishbone" which is basically just flattening out a piece of clay to a circle and pulling bits of clay up to form a finger like piece. Basically a deformed hand with random fingers.

    Then make two more small ball clay pieces and put them on each side like you're finally adding the round bits from the top of a heart <3

    Step 9

    For the wire in the back to have the necklace connect to the heart I took two pieces of wire for each look and twisted them together to make it thicker for lack of stronger wire. I then pushed it into the back of my heart.

    ^-^

    Then bake in the oven. I did it at 350* F for 10 minutes. Just follow the directions of your clay @_@
