Ooh, isn't this a wonderful glass heart "bead"?!! It's more of a pendant than a bead, but with unlimited possibilities, you never know where something like this could show up in a piece of handmade jewelry!
This colorful heart was a gift from a coworker who surprised me with 3 packages, each with a different heart pendant last week. She had previously brought in a stretchy cord woven bracelet of her sister's that needed repaired and considering all it took was tying on a piece of elastic and weaving it through a few beads, I made out!
I have since added a "bead-able" silver chain to this pendant and gifted my Mom with it. I thought she might have fun adding beads to the chain on either side of the pendant.
This heart is also bright and cheerful enough to pass as holiday jewelry!! We used red CZ's and white glass pearls to make a holiday bracelet last weekend and interestingly, the necklace matched perfectly!
You could also incorporate this heart, since it is rather small, into a woven hemp cord necklace with lots of strands and crazy dangles! I can't wait to show you the other two hearts which appear to have all come from JoAnn, etc.
Hope you are having a good one!! :)
