Everlasting Heartfire

 The Everlasting Heartfire pendant was one of my most popular designs this holiday season!  I sold many of them as loose pendants and more as necklaces with the heart attached to a simple chain as a quick and inexpensive holiday gift.  I have been wanting to string one into a more elaborate design, and the addition to the round Heartfire link to my bead line gave me extra incentive.  I was thinking of offering the above necklace as a kit...anyone interested?
 While I was glazing up the samples of the link, I played around with some new glaze applications to the heart, like the one above.  It would be a little too hard to reproduce, so I have this set as a one of a kind listing on Etsy.
But I did settle on a new color for the heart called Gothic Red.  The addition of a black glaze into the crevasses makes the Candy Red glaze application have extra depth and darkness.  So now I have 4 colors in the Heartfire pendants and links and I have them all in stock on the website.
