Valentine Heart Beads

I am continuing to make the Cindy Lietz "Jupiter Beads" for our challenge, but this time I put a different spin on a few of them.  One large Jupiter bead I cut part way down the middle and shaped it into a heart.  This brings a whole new pattern to the bead.  A surprise that forms by cutting into the center.  I also did this with the smaller hearts that will be earrings.

I then flattened a pair of jupiter beads and will make earrings out of these.  The rest of the round beads will be made into a bracelet.  As you can tell, I am enjoy this project.

It is so fun to see you trying so many different techniques and putting your own spin on them, Loretta! That is the best and quickest way to learn how to make great polymer clay beads!
