Kawaii Hearts | Making some Clay Jewelery

Kawaii Hearts with wings are coming into the air and flying straight for you! Who can resist these cuties? I ♥ them so.

To continue with the heart theme, I wanted to share an easy and fun idea for making your own lovely jewelry using clay. I made these a while back, but it’s still February so I’m just going to continue with my favorite theme…

Hearts and love.

Big Flying Kawaii Heart

I think a lot of my love of cuteness is celebrated in these hearts. I made them from different hues of pink clay, and then painted eyes and a little mouth to them. Oh, and some blush to the cheeks of course…

I made them as little necklace pieces, attaching a little ring to each one and then a neon thread, but now that I think about it they would be super cute dangling from just about anything from a bag to a key chain, or even as charms for my Traveler’s Notebook!

Fimo Clay is like Magic

I made my hearts out of different colors of pink Fimo Soft Polymer Clay, which you bake in the oven for only half an hour in 110 celcius (230F). These days it is available in a lot of different fun colors, in Metallic Gold, or a shimmery Mother of Pearl.

I also noticed there is a line called Fimo Effect where you can get clay with different cool effects like nightglow, glitter, transparent, translucent, metallic, granite stone and pastel, just to give a few examples. I want to try all of these!

I really like working with clay, in short bursts of time. This even though I’m very aware that I’m not a great sculptor. I don’t have the patience for working too long on the same piece,. But theses small projects are easy to form, and fun to finish with just a few dots of acrylic paint once they’re baked in the regular kitchen oven.

I made some even smaller hearts, that I painted with polka dots. I feel a bit obsessed with polka dots again, and might need to share more as the heart period soon is over. Although I also want to do some embroidered hearts in March…

Making clay beads

I also rolled some beads when I made the hearts, and although I love the two-color effect and the lacquered finish on them, this is not a hobby I need to explore further. I tired before I was even finished…

It takes a lot of time to make just a few beads, so a whole necklace was out of the question for me. Plus I wasn’t content with just making them, I had to add tiny little polka dots to some of them too…

But when I threaded this one of a kind necklace I used the handmade beads at the front, and then pink plastic beads for the rest of the string, and that worked great.

Doesn’t it look a little bit like one of those candy necklaces we had as kids? Do they still sell them?

For Valentine’s Day I wore this kawaii heart, and when my boyfriend came home he gave me the light pink heart, made of stone.

He carved it from stone, for me. I love it, and have worn it every day since. Handmade gifts are from the heart, as I’m sure you know.

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.

    Your kawaii hearts turned out so cute! Thanks for sharing them with us! And thank you for mentioning that although you enjoyed the experience, making clay beads isn’t necessarily a craft you want to do again. Sometimes it’s easy for me to forget that I’m allowed to try a craft or new medium or supply and enjoy the experience, but I don’t always have to become perfect at it or even do it again. The experience of trying something new can even inspire us when we go back to our “usual” crafts/medium. I love that it gives me a new perspective! But that doesn’t mean I have to love every type of craft I try. Thank you so much for this reminder!
