Polymer hearts are simple icons that are easy to make. Broken, mended, sugary, romantic, bleeding, tattooed…they come in many varieties. Being easy to make doesn’t have to mean boring. Here are a few hearts with heart.

Louise Fischer Cozzi sells translucent, thin, minimalist pendants that benefit the Heart Association on her Etsy site. The edges are carefully painted gold. Easy? Yes. Classy? Certainly.

Fairy-Cakes goes for a light-hearted pop art version with a colorful controlled swirl on her DeviantArt page.

Donna Greenberg’s chunky, sparkly mosaics speak of fashion and flair more than love and she has a new line of them. She calls these her bursting hearts. (Thanks to Sarah Connor for the link.) What does your heart look like?

    So many really cool hearts following these links! Have you seen some of Wendy Wallin Malinow’s freaky hearts in her etsy shop. They drip with jeweled blood and are to DIE for!!

    Thanks for the Monday morning jumpstart!

      So nice to see a virtual parade of such cool hearts. The superswirl and colors of Fairy-Cakes swirled heart especially goes right to MY heart.

        Thank you for posting my heart pendant. While I do hope to purvey fashion and flair as you say, my original large copper and gold pendant was done in honor of my 33rd wedding anniversary. My own heart was bursting with love that morning so I went to the studio to make it and wear it that day.

          Thanks for the wonderful daily e-mails.

          Fairy-cakes states, below the image to which your link takes me, that she bought this clay pendant rather than making it. Just wanted to point that out. Casting no aspersions, just adding clarity!

          Blessings to all my fellow polyclay artists out there!

            Terri – OMG! I totally missed that. Thanks for your eagle eye and kudos to the swirl artist, whoever he/she may be.

              Love all of the hearts…gives me a push to start making some myself again, ’tis the season and all that;) The link for the swirled heart says it was made by ebay uk user: beadbabe79 … now why is that name so familiar?
