This handmade polymer clay broken heart has been mended using silver plated wire and is finished at the top with a small red rose. What I love best about this heart is the fact that during the creation process it developed a "wound" at the top which I sliced open exposing the inside of the blister creating a lovely opening - perfect in it's imperfection. The pendant hangs from what I like to call a "Frankenstein" bale. This little heart measures 2 inches wide by 2 inches tall and is strung on to bunya (solid rubber) cord the total length measures 17". The necklace is finished with a lobster clasp. What inspired me to make this heart? I'm a big fan of Melissa Auf der Maur - there is a lyric in her song "Follow the Map" that goes...Leather skin with a broken heart......the look of the heart sorta makes me think of leather. The song is about a man with a broken heart who turns to piracy - a pirate tale would not be complete without a secret map...and there is one on the back of this black heart, crumpled and aged...leading you to...hmmm ...who knows... ;-).
I loved making a whole series of these hearts, each with a map on the back.
