HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to all my polymer clay friends.
I feel a little sad, I buried my "pretty bird" cockatiel today. He wasn't much of a talker, could only say "pretty bird". He was fairly old when I got him 15 years ago, he belonged to a friend of my daughters, when the friend got a new dog the bird and the dog didn't get along so he came to live with me. A couple years later Patty gave me a young female cockatiel to keep him company, she is feeling pretty lonely right now. I put a couple more mirrors in the cage, that seemed to help. I guess she will adjust. I buried him in the back garden, when the weather is warmer I will plant a lily nearby.
Okay, on to a happier topic.
My partner for the Texture and Heart Swap received the package so I can show you the texture sheets and necklace I made for her.
This is the Heart Pendant. I made a beaded wire bail and used a decorative chain. I used PearlEx to add sparkle to the design.

I made negative and positive texture sheets in a floral design. I used the same Sculpey II that I used to make my other texture sheets and stamps. ArmorAll is the best release but cornstarch and water work fairly well too.
I hope to make a cane for tomorrow. See you then.
Thanks for stopping by.
