Unchain My Heart Sea Glass Necklace

Unchain My Heart Sea Glass Necklace

My husband is the sea glass collector for me, when he occasionally takes a trip into Sydney to ride on the trains and ferries.

He has found quite a few pieces on some of the inner harbour beaches, and he picked up this piece one day recently.

I was busy when he got home, so it was a couple of days before I looked through the small stash he brought home.

I saw this heart-shaped piece and knew I had to put a bezel around it.

I decided to combine three of my favourite materials, and used polymer clay to make the bezel, and a chainmaille weave called 6-in-1 spiral to make the chain.

Although it does have the slightly sharp edge in the cleft of the heart, I still think it works and is a nice jewellery piece.

About Polymer Clay
by: Melody

Polymer clay is a workable medium that is heated in an oven which hardens it into a permanent form. It comes in a wide range of colours so it is not necessary to paint it. I used gold-coloured polymer clay on this piece.

Your necklace is very beautiful! I love it! I have never used polymer clay. Is that a soft material that you shape and then paint?
