Heart Charms 4 300x208 Polymer Clay Heart Charms by Candace Jedrowicz Using your jewelry tools, attach the ends of the chain together. I used these small polymer clay hearts from a previous project.  The clay had been burnished with craft foil on both sides. I dressed them up by applying a dimensional sealer on both sides. Check out my Creative Jam Jar video to see how the craft foil is applied to unbaked polymer clay. I used this method on the label.

    Beautiful job on your heart bracelet. I need to look for that foil…love the rainbow one. It gives the hearts such color and just the right amount of bling.
