Crystal’s Bead Challenge Reveal: My Kissing Hearts Necklace

I am so glad I gave myself plenty of time to experiment with these pretty red hearts and white tubes. Got them at Crystal’s bead shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/beadhappilyeverafter. The plan was to spend about two days making a bracelet. The design which was in my head was a charm bracelet with dangling hearts.

But after starting, a different idea popped up.

Even necklace ideas floated passed my eyes.

If the hearts could talk, I bet they would have said, “enough already!! Pick ONE design and stick to it!!” LOL!! Thank goodness stringing wire is cheap.

This is what I ended up submitting. Kissing Hearts. It makes my heart go all skippy just looking at it. I love it!!

I had fun working on Crystal’s challenge. Go check out the other entries from all of the participants. Very pretty. Looking at them gave me a couple of ideas. I love looking at handcrafted jewelry.

    Thanks, Deb. It was great working with my beads again.

    Crystal, I forgot one necklace idea I had. Just added it to my post. I just didn’t want to do all that wirework and then end up taking it apart. But I like the design.
