Sorry I didn’t post last week. My life’s been a bit crazy lately…

So, with Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought you all might need a little help with gifts for your steampunk lovers. I’ve noticed that hearts have become a very popular piece in the steampunk craft community. I’ve seen various different versions and styles and have even tried some of my own. Steampunk being such a romantic world, I think this was something I should use to inspire others in their steampunk jewelry pursuits, especially in February.

Hearts made mostly out of clay is one route to take. Here are two that I personally attempted.
