Love those raku beads.
Work on your open spirals with this not-too-cutesy heart link. Two lightweight and comfortable bracelets and coordinating earrings. I’m not really into hearts, but I like these because of the spirals.
Oh, and I guess the Swarovski Puffy Heart pattern is an okay heart because of all the sparkles. I saw those pendants for sale in Old Town Alexandria over the weekend for $92. Sheesh.
Coming up… a square/diamond pattern similar to the Puffy Heart Pendant. As if you needed a way to use those beautiful crystals!
