From the Heart
I thought I'd share a new necklace design with you today.
In my goody bag this month, Rings & Things sent Valentine-themed components which included several of these cute lampworked heart beads. I don't know about you, but they remind me of frosted sugar cookies. I decided that one was simply not enough for a focal, so I strung four decorative hearts with Swarovski crystal on a short length of beading wire to create a single long dangle. The large 10mm faceted rose quartz is also from Rings & Things from my stash. I finished the piece with smaller rose quartz beads, a few pearlized seed beads and a floral toggle clasp.
Thank you to Rings & Things for providing great holiday inspiration (as usual)! Does anyone else have Valentine's jewelry to share? Let me know!
Please note: The lampworked heart beads mentioned in this post were promotional gifts from Rings & Things for review and/or design partnership purposes.
