"Gingerbread" Heart

Hello! Today's bead is not really made of gingerbread, it is a wooden heart bead. In this close-up photo, it really looks like gingerbread - Yum!

This is a great one to use with hemp cord or faux leather cord along with colorful wooden beads. I've made cute earrings from these and also used one on a pull cord for a homemade purse.

These types of beads have a tendency to get lost among all the shiny glass and crystal beads at the craft store. This is just another example of why you should give every bead a chance to stand out in your designs. You just might be surprised at which ones become shining stars!
