Love to Clay & Craft Madness Sponsor Spotlight & Review #ihearthandmade

Handmade from the Heart will start on Valentine's Day!  
This giveaway hop is all about celebrating handmade products and their makers.

 I love unique jewelry, and there is no better place to turn for gorgeous, unique, handcrafted jewelry options than Etsy.  Rebecca has two fantastic Etsy shops.  The first is Love to Clay.  Love to Clay is where she lists all of her beautiful jewelry.  Rebecca works mostly with polymer clay and resin to create her handmade artistic pieces.

She generously sent me the poppy photo pendant for review.  I absolutely love it!   She handmade this pendant using pearl Premo! polymer clay. It gives the photo a shimmery effect in the light. The pendant was sealed with resin for a glossy shine and lasting durability.  It hangs on an 18 inch Shimmery Red Organza Ribbon with red twine and has a 2 inch extension chain.   I really love, love, love, the ribbon chain.  It is so unique and really makes the necklace stand out in an excellent way.  The red ribbon also makes the poppies in the pendant pop.  And bonus- it's perfect for Valentine's Day!  The very first day I wore this pendant I received compliments from all of my friends. Seriously!  Of course, I directed those friends straight to Rebecca's shop to pick out their own fun necklace.  I also really love how this necklace dresses up my plain black tee when I wear it.

When you purchase a pendant you can choose a variety of ribbon colors,
so you can definitely find exactly what you're looking for.

Rebecca's second shop is Craft Madness.  In this shop she sells all of her other artistic expressions in crafting.  She has some awesome colorful graphic designs that she has made into pinbacks and magnets using polymer clay and resin.  There is no better way to dress up your fridge or your creative spaces! 

 Rebecca sent me these owl button magnets to review and they are super cute. I absolutely love how colorful they are. Each magnet is a one inch, but they are seriously heavy duty! So, not only are these adorable, but they are also very functional. And we know that that can be hard to find with a lot of other decorative magnets. I tested these on my fridge and one magnet held 10 sheets of copy paper! 

Both of my items were carefully packaged and arrived to me in perfect condition.  They were also beautifully packaged.  I really like how the magnets came on this metal tray.

These buttons don't have to be magnets though. You can choose to have your decorative buttons made into 
pinbacks or magnets when you purchase them.

Buy It:  You can buy your own beautiful pendant necklaces at Love to Clay Etsy Shop and
