Valentine Hearts

About this design:

I joined a monthly bead club from Canada. I liked that every month they chose a theme and sent a theme card in the box. So the challenge for me was to make something using what they sent with their theme card as my guide. I ended up using products from LB to complete my project. I included a picture of the card they sent.


The LB Czech beads I used are the cobalt beads and the red heart beads, I also used a Zolo chain from LB. The main gold heart is from my stock. The gold chain is from LB.

    Hopefully, this month when I get their box, I will use more of their beads. LOL Lima beads is my favorite place for beads and general supplies.

    I totally agree with you about LB beads and general supplies. This is certainly a brightly colored necklace. I do like the whole thing, but for me it looks like it might be a little heavy to wear.

    I am curious which beading club Donna as I live in Canada and have not heard of any.

    The monthly subscription is from Blueberry Cove Beads. You can pull them up on internet. I may not keep it forever. But, for right now, the subscription is fun and I love what I have received.

    I love this bright cheery necklace! I especially like those cocoon beads & have been lusting after them for a while now. And the whole bead club idea is so neat! Post all of your monthly creations. It’s a great way to use your creativity & imagination.

    Thanks everyone. I guess I needed some more “push” to get back into making jewelry. I don’t know how long I will keep the subscription but for now I do like the surprise box every month.

    Challenges can be a lot of fun, and I agree they can really push the creative side of each of us. I especially like the red hearts and the Zola chain with the red crystals in it. Can’t wait to see your next challenge!
