Brighten up my heart!

About this design:

This one was made late last night when I had a sudden attraction to my yellow Jasper and Chinese Turquoise. Since valentines day is coming up I thought it appropriate to throw in some Celtic heart wire work.


Yellow jasper oval beads. Chinese Turquoise chips. 20 gauge Copper wire colored in gun metal. 1 mm leather cord
