Be Still My "Bleeding" Heart!

Bleeding Heart necklace and earrings are new to my shop and I am SO excited about them! I am also working on a bracelet design, which I will add as soon as it is finished! The heart pendant is made from two separate hand cast resin hearts that are adhered together with resin. I carve the extra resin off the edges where the two meet, and then sand and sand and sand until the seam is barely visible. Then I sand the rest of the piece to a frosted finish. Next, I mix more resin and add the "veins" to the surface, which adds a beautifull glossy contrast!
I am loving the finished product! The necklace sells for $40 and the earrings for $20 in my etsy shop. Hope you love them as much as I do!
