Untraditional Valentine

Who says Valentine's Day jewelry has to be pink, red, or even hearts and diamonds? These vintage inspired necklaces are very romantic, thanks to the sentiment on the handmade polymer clay pendants by the talented Heather Wynn.

old love does not rust
I paired these with antique skeleton keys I found in my very own basement - they have a wonderful time worn patina on them. The necklace on the left has been strung on glass rounds that have a nice rusty color and texture to match the key, and some aqua terra jasper to bring out the teal color of the polymer clay. Peruvian opals were the perfect choice for the necklace on the right, which is now listed on Etsy.

Really gorgeous. I am not a pink and hearts kind of girl so I really dig these. Love the sentiment. Enjoy the day! Erin

I love these! I love turquoise colors, so that helps, and it all just goes together so well.
